I know it's a bad thing, but I am curious what others would put in the drop box.
Imagine, purely for a intelectual workout, we did not elect a voluntary President, but instead conscripted or drafted one.
Who would you draft and why?
Personally, I would look for someone like Fred Thompson with a lot of practicle business experience like an Iacoca.
A solid center line conservative (on most things) combined with a top of the line business person? Somone who understands the needs of budgets, the limits of revenue generation in relation to customer statisfaction and both men have shown they have the (pardon my expression) balls to do what is needed.
