Absolutely. It would be an honor to be one of the greatest leaders this nation has ever seen.

Never gave it much thought but what has been President in present and past years makes me think I may have done much better.

I would hate it and also I don't think I'd be very good at it so then I would only hate it more.

I'd be dead inside of a week. Both parties and all of the crocks in our system would kill anyone who wasn't a total sellout.

HELL no. The opposing party hates me, I will have to fight and argue for what I want. Maybe an executive decision or two. Will have to deal with lobbyists, veto stupid bills, fly overseas for meetings , go on TV when there's a tragedy (hate public speaking) and other speeches, have to deal with the media's questions and bias, the job also ages you from stress, you have to raise boatloads of cash to campaign, mudsling, fingerpoint (if opponents do- I'm not a nice person. But I probably wouldn't) I'll be hated because if congress acted like they did now, I'd lock them in the room, tell them they're not getting paid until they come up with a permanent budget. I'd probably get impeached. No. I'll skip it.

I used to think no, because dealing with legislators would be pretty tedious, but I've come to realize you don't have to. Just have one of your lackeys remind them who is in charge, and that you'll be much too busy to bother with the worst of them during your (at most) two terms there. I think I could find a way to do the important stuff while not bothering with the fluff.

Way too much stress and responsibility. Plus $400,000 a year seems like chump change for all the job requires. I'm not smart enough to do it or aware enough of world events and politics.

Not a chance in hell. Half the country will hate you, most of the world would hate you, and I wouldn't be able to get anything substantial done to this twisted country in 4 years. Probably one of the worst jobs in the world if you ask me.

One of the biggest problems we have is that the most qualified people don't want the job. Which leaves us with those people that really want it. Like those kids in grade school that would do and say anything to be liked. You know, the people that shouldn't have the job.

Yes, I'm a policy wonk. I'm obsessed with learning, reading proposals from all sides, learning their strengths, debating with opposition. So the actual governing I would deeply enjoy. However, the politics side of it would drive me nuts. I hate the media and I hate corruption. So I'd be Jimmy Cartered within a week.

No way! I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, and all the lies, corruption, and demagoguery would drive me insane. In my quest for an honest, efficent, and smaller Federal Government, I would be eaten alive by the "do-gooders" and the fake media.

The position of President isn't supposed to be "enjoyed." It's not a job, it's a tremendous responsibility to the country.

I would be unpopular with both parities because I would do unpopular things like flat-tax for everybody and corporations, no deductions. Slash the IRS by 90%, push more to states and abolish the EPA, FDA, department of education, cut military by half, privatize social security, abolish affordable care act. Congressional 2-term limit, and constitutional amendment for mandatory balanced federal budget.

Somebody has to cleanup the mess of democrats, republicans, and their cronies ruining the federal government.

You do know that the Prez has to pay for his & his family's food and personal items, and any soirees that are not State events, right? And he gets paid a tenth of what a lot of corporate CEOs do. It's not the gravy train you allude to.

Yes I know but trust me It is a money grab , if you want to serve your country you'd do it for free. The ex presidents make money for speaking appearances ,books and numerous other "favors" for other politicians.
