How about Tony Soprano for president?
And why not? Tony is an alpha male who takes control. Could you picture him taking any crap from Republicans? And blue dog Democrats would worry about ending up among the missing.

Sure, rivals like big oil, insurance companies, big pharma, banks, and Wall Street would try to whack him. But as weve seen over the years, Tony has a knack for surviving.

The question then becomes, whats in it for all the rest of us? Well, Tony always wants to be paid his tribute. But he also makes sure that those who are with him get to earn a decent living. He needs them. So I guess if we voted him into office, hed need us too.

And yeah, I know hes a fictional character, but so what? A fictional character as president might be a big improvement over what weve been living with for the last 30 years.

Okay, so this is a tongue-in-cheek posting. But how much worse could Tony be than the thugs who currently govern us -- or those who own them.
