If You Could Pick Any Leader

If you could pick any world leader, past, present, unsuccessful runner up or even fictional leader character, who would you pick for your country in these times and why?



If you choose Trudeau, PM me, I am open to negotiations.

My first choice is Barack again. He already has great experience and although I don't like everything about him, he's "the devil I know."

There are other world leaders who I admire, but their experience might be much worse equipped to deal with some of the troubles that the USA often handles for them.

If I had to select a non American, I'd go with Merkel or Trudeau.

Although I'd take Hilary over Trump, she's not high on my list of choices due to her extremely aggressive foreign policies.

For the UK, I'd like Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London) as PM, but he recently said he had no interest in leading the Labour Party.

Since I'm allowed fictional characters, though, I think I'll go for Daenerys Targaryen, who is good at coalition building and has a strong interest in social justice. Her dragons would come in useful, too, I'm sure.

If I restrict myself to current US politicians ... Sen Sanders. Past ones? JFK would probably be interesting (although far from perfect). Some of the NA chiefs sounded interesting but I would want to read more about the potential ones there.

Delving into fiction though ..... SO many good possibilities. Duke Leto Attreides 1st.

Watching Designated Survivor through after The Asshole got elected made me wish we could just appoint Kiefer Sutherland as President instead.

Well, his character anyway. So I will go with that.

I think this is a fantastic idea. If the Office of the President remains the Office of Spectacle, why not someone who seems like a genuinely nice person. We could resurrect Fred Rogers while we are at it.

Putting on a realist hat, Merkel. She's got compassion, but won't freak anyone out and would quickly gain trust from her past experience.

But what we really need is someone who could break the death grip of both the dominionists and moneyed aristocracy, and provide medication to some of the loonies out there such as Mercer.

Either him or Pres. Bartlett from West Wing, it would be a tossup in many ways.

Well, if you are going to drag reality into it .... former President Halonen from Finland. Left wing and as a plus she looks like Conan O'Brien.

OK, I'm no longer interested in Franken as President. Sharrod Brown would be next. Or maybe Ron Wyden. Or either as VP choice for Warren.

No matter how bad things get, we would still get our announcements in the soothing voice of Morgan Freeman.

Seriously. Think about it for a minute.

Yes, President Comancho is a man of little brain but...

He appears to have his nation's best interests forwardmost in thoughts.

Recognising his shortcomings, he deliberately surrounds himself with the smartest advisors he can find, listens to their advice and despite any personal misgivings, act on that advice.

When someone much more qualified for the job comes along, he retires from the position and supports them in taking over the role.

Yes, he's an idiot, but he's an idiot who is in the job for the right reasons and who has the self-awareness to recognise his limitations and the desire to take steps to address those limitations. All of which to my mind makes him a hell of a lot better than 90% of the politicians we actually have.
