Yesterday I said I was going to run for president eight years from now. While I was sitting at work, and I wasn't thinking about work, 'cause that just doesn't happen, I began planning ahead. I started to think about who I would want close to me. Who would I have as advisers?
First off, I would definitely have Kevin in a position on the cabinet. I don't know exactly which department I would have him in charge of. But I know whatever I appointed him as, he would do a good job. He's been selling cabinets for years. I need someone with that kind of experience on my cabinet.
Mark would be in there somewhere too. He's a guy that has a lot of opinions. But it's not like he just spouts off what he's thinking without thinking about it. All of his stances on the issues are very well thought out and articulated. He gets pretty passionate about things, especially when dealing with the welfare of the country.
As I write this, I realize that I'm only appointing my friends in these positions. Didn't they coin a phrase for that a few years back? Was it "cronyism?" Sounds good to me. 'Cause I'm also appointing Andy and Brandon somewhere too. Guess I should put some women on the cabinet too. 'Cause diversity isn't just an old wooden ship.
I'd go ahead and say I'll appoint Nicole to Homeland Security or something like that, but I'm not sure that I would want both members of a married couple in the cabinet. What's the saying? Politics makes strange bedfellows? I really don't know what that means, but I think it might have something to do with political differences between a husband and wife. Nicole can be the White House chief of staff. Or Jen. I'll let them fight it out.
All of this, of course, is a moo point if I can't get elected. Let's start talking this thing up folks. I have an average of 18 readers here every day. Our first move would be to build up that number. I think it's entirely possible to turn this country on its head eight years from now. A nobody with no funding could come from out of nowhere to become POTUS.
