Would you want to be President?

Postby Aredita » Fri Apr 16, 2021 6:36 pm

Here's a good question: would you want to be President of the USA if you had the funding, met the age requirement, etc?

Personally, I would, yes.

God, can you imagine? The constant stress? The daily hard choices you'll have to make? Dealing with your political opponents? Knowing you'll be the scapegoat for any major thing that goes wrong, no matter how much control you actually had over it? No way, Jose.

I would not want to be President until I'm much older and have a few years of Governmental experience under my belt. But, I do consider serving as President to be a remarkable way of being remembered and leaving a legacy, so yes, in the end I would want to be President.
