Vox Populi

If you could appoint anyone to be president, who would it be and why?

Probably Kurt Vonnegut if he was still alive. I just think he has a wonderful perspective on society.

I’m so sick of it all. It’s Obama, just because I went and voted for him. I don’t know anyone else who has his characteristics and potential.

Obama because I think he’s really, really going to change the world. He’s the perfect healing element for the race issue. … It’s all about transformation. He’s what we’ve so been waiting for after these lost eight years. I think he’s the perfect antidote. We need the freshness.

Obama. Why? Because he’s eloquent, educated and he’s inclusive … I think that most people are angry and mistrustful of the Republican agenda. It’s not accidental that I live and work in a blue pocket.

I wouldn’t elect one person. I would like for it to be two-person election.

Here’s what I think: Whoever won the election, the other person would have to be the vice president. That would be a good way to sort this whole thing out.
