They should amend the consitution so that William Shatner can run against him.

The dramatic pauses in the debates would be worth it.

Well if Walken became president just his presence alone may scare off the terrorists.

I has actually heard elsewhere that this was indeed a fake website.

Still an entertaining thought, though. I'd love to be able to say that the first president I ever voted for was President Walken.

Sorry, too late to edit and obvious grammatical errors like that annoy me.

from defamer

"We find it hard to believe that anyone thought that Christopher Walken was actually planning a presidential run in 2008 (it seemed so obvious that we merely tossed it into the end-of-day links last week), but here come the official denials:

Walken’s representatives say they aren’t sure who masterminded the website but speculate that it might have been prompted by Walken’s latest film, “Wedding Crashers,” a hit comedy starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. In it, Walken plays the U.S. secretary of the Treasury.

“The person who put this together was just trying it as a hoax, I presume,” said Mara Buxbaum, Walken’s publicist. “My take on it is it sounds like the person who put this on the Web took his role … in ‘Wedding Crashers’ too seriously and now wants him to run for the presidency.” […]

Walken’s agent, Toni Howard of International Creative Management, scoffed at the notion of Walken running for office.

“I don’t know where they got it,” Howard said. “That’s like saying Tim Robbins is running on the Republican ticket. [Walken] is the least political guy I know.”

The very notion was more than ridiculous from the start—perhaps even more absurd than lefty Robbins hooking up with the GOP. How could Walken possibly devote the time necessary to launch an effective presidential campaign while he’s busy drafting the Iraqi constitution? Organizing the principles of freedom is a full-time job. "
