If you were voted in twice you can't serve ever again. Doesn't have to be consecutive.

Clinton can never serve again nor can Shrub Jr. Praise Jesus.

I'm guessing the first two, the economy and jobs, will be at the forefront. Healthcare will be decided by the Supreme Court, which prevaricates to protect corporations. Don't forget that this election cycle corps. will be able to donate limitlessly. And dontcha know, they're sitting on a shit ton of money.

I'm really losing faith in American politics. They're taking this country right down the shitter. It's going to take a recession of Great Depression (I'm talking 1920's & 1930's) proportions to make these people get their heads out of their asses. Some of this country's greatest social reforms came from the Great Depression, and I'm afraid to say that's almost what we need to happen.

Oscar The Grouch for President.

His closest friends and advisors all care about education the youth of America.

He'll be honest and say things aren't perfect...in fact a lot of stuff around him stinks.

If Bert and Ernie wanted to get married, as some people suggest, you gotta think he'd be cool with legalizing it.

You know he'd keep the funding for public broadcasting flowing, which means continued episodes of Nova, Nature, and Austin City Limits.

Four words: Vice President Big Bird.

More words: Secretary of The Treasury, The Count.
