ive considered it.

but, as kieran suggested, good intentions are contorted by the electoral systems of most regions.

as a public servant at the moment, it is a thought in the very far back of my mind.

I agree, people who run for office have a desire for power that I don't have. I'm glad I don't have this ambition. Look at all of the people who've gotten in trouble for this! Some people in my state have sorry reputations as a result of failed political campaigns. The Democratic governor who was voted out of office in 2002 is in hot water for alleged illegal financial activities.

I'd love to be a political speechwriter, but other than that, no.

I used to write political speeches for a shire council (mayor) of 9,000 residents. Pretty goddamn smalltime, but plenty enough to tell me that I was in the wrong line of work.

I love politics. Whether or not power will corrupt me, who knows. As George Stephanopoulos said, "I went into politics in order to do good and do well." That's exactly how I feel, I want to help others and do pretty well myself. But I doubt I'd run for president...I wouldn't want to live in a fishbowl.

I have changed my mind...or at least, I should say that things have happened in my life in the last 24 hours (not in my control) that would NEVER let me attain public office without a LOT of dirty laundry being dried out (and it isn't even MINE).

I am currently President...of the young democrats at my high school...


Running for President, is one of my life dreams. It's the ultimate chance at trying to make the world a better place.
