In honor of the can't-get-here-soon-enough presidential election and all the craziness that is leading up to it, I present you with today's Food for Thought, Presidential Style. A few questions might seem tough...but you can just call it "gotcha blogging."
Appetizer: What newspapers/magazines do you read on a regular basis?
Salad: Who was/is your favorite president? (He could be your favorite because of his policies, his legacy, whatever.)
Main course: If you were running for president, who would you choose as your running mate? Why?
Dessert: Who is your intellectual hero and who is your despicable devil? The key here is to find someone in history who you think of as an intellectual hero because of his/her beliefs, theologies, actions, etc., and then someone you find despicable for the same reasons. You don't have to give a reason - unless you so desire. (I take this question directly from my political science guru, the late Dr. Frank Henderson and his class "Intellectual Heroes/Despicable Devils". The best poli sci class I have ever taken).
I'm also adding a rule to this one - because everyone seems so bitter and angry about the presidential race, there will be NO negative campaigning on this post.
Just respect everyone's answers and feel free to comment - unless your comment is going to include calling some a moron, fool, idiot, or any variation on farm animals with our without makeup, etc.
Blue state, red state or somewhere in between...let's just all get along, OK?
All right...put on your thinkin' caps and let's talk!
