The Next Presidential Election

Posted on May 29, 2010 by under Life.    

I told someone the other day. “I think they would get more voters if the Presidential elections were done like American Idol.” We all had a laugh and I didn’t think much of it until today. My dad made a joke about running for office and it sparked that memory.

Think abut it! How would the Presidential elections be if we ran them like American Idol? We would have the “Contestants” all come in for a Season. It would be televised. We could have previous Presidents be judges and Political Analysts, Advisers or Advocates would be Mentors during specific sessions. Then the United States gets to vote through their cellphone just like on Idol and the person with the most votes wins the Presidency. Think of the ratings. Think of the advertising. Think of the sponsorships! All of these companies clamoring to sponsor the next President of the United States. Well, that’s not much different than right now; but this would be more public.

I think the biggest problem with the elections right now are that they are boring. No one understands what the hell they are talking about half the time. Other times they just drag things on so much that no one really cares. We could get John Maher to host the show. I think that if it was thrown out to the people in an entertaining platform like that, you would see more interest, more voters. People would pay more attention and in the end, you might get a better President.

Or, it could change nothing.

“Dim the lights!”
