If you watch CBS’s Sunday Morning this week, you might have caught Ben Stein tripping about Barrack Obama running for president in 2012…as a Republican. Barrack Obama, Ernest Hemingway and Arthur Ashe are the coolest cats ever in my opinion but watching the president catch all this heat is rough.
Stein was joking but readers of this blog know that I have always thought that Obama raised moderate to conservative as was the First Lady. He didn’t get really liberal until college or maybe Chi-town. If he ran as a Republican, I would have voted for him and the same can be said about presidential candidates Condi Rice and Colin Powell. I want an Obama second term but if a GOPer became the next president it would be cool to have Georgian Newt Gingrich so he could make me head of the National Endowment for the Arts for the two months before he cut their funding.
Bill Clinton has been such a great former president with his global initiative and I hope that President Obama does the same with domestic issues and social understanding for his presidency. I don’t want to hear from my conservative friends who would say that sounds great and could start in two years rather than six years. I can wait.
