With the race for the President of the United states of America coming up, the airwaves have been bombarded with political message after political message. (Those of you who live outside the US, be grateful.) I just so happen to not like either candidate and I can think of ten individuals I would rather vote for. So without further ado, may I unveil my presidential nominations in ascending order.
10. John Carter of Mars
Here’s a bloke who’s all action and no talk. A war hero who’s taken on the hordes of Green Martians, you couldn’t ask for a stronger personality. However, his strength is also his weakness and his rather martial mindset could be a problem during diplomatic state visits.
9. Peeta Mellark
Unlike Mr. Carter, Peeta has the gift of speech. He has a way of inspiring people which would be invaluable as a leader. He’s also cute.
8. Doctor Who
The Doctor would make a brilliant president. Clever, open-minded, and creative, he always knows what’s best. Though, he might find the restrictions of office to be a bit much, which is why he’s No. 8.
Wise, patient, kind, from what I’ve seen, Dumbledore would be an awesome president, too.
6. Shepherd Book
The retired black-ops specialist turned priest in Firefly would also be an excellent choice for his open-mindedness, cleverness, and sense of humor.
5. Armandius Caersynn
Armandius Plontagent Kirlistan Caersynn is strong, brave, and does a fine job as High Lord of Green Haven, so I say we vote him in.
4. Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander
As a Wizard of the First Order, we wouldn’t have to worry about a security detail for this president. Not to mention he would see to it that White House dinner parties always had excellent menus.
3. Prince Caspian
Do I really need to explain? Caspian is good-hearted, strong, patient, and tries to do the right thing. (I may have also had a crush on him at one point, but that’s irrelevant.)
Another president who wouldn’t need a security detail. And with the wisdom of centuries inside that head, who can protest his qualifications?
1. King Arthur
The Once and Future King would be the perfect president. He united All Britain, didn’t he? So long as we keep a look out for Morgan Le Fay and keep him from meeting Guinevere until after she hooks up with Lancelot, we’ll be fine.
So…who would you vote for?
