Stewart ‘08”

This article entitled “Stewart ‘08” about electing a comedian president perked my interest. I will be eligible to vote in the next presidential election and I’ve realized I want to be able to cast an educated vote. Frannie proposes that a comedian, such as John Stewart, should run for president and I couldn’t agree more. I think it is necessary to have a political background; however, our country needs a change from the dry president from a wealthy political family. “This is the 21st century, and it’s my generation who will inherit this country.” Our generation is more in need of a leader who doesn’t talk at the people, but understands and empathizes with all American citizens.

I think a comedian such as Jon Stewart, has the important qualifications and experience with an open mind, not the unwanted stale mind that has guided past generations. Comedians have experience in the media and are well spoken, which our country is not accustomed to at the moment. I think a break from the cookie cutter mold of our country’s leader would do our nation some good.
