Given the state of the world today, it's not crazy to wonder why anyone would actually want to be president of the United States. Most experts expect that we're going to be mired in recession for years to come, God knows how we're going to get ourselves out of Iraq, they're making yet another Pirates of the Caribbean movie; it's going to be a terrible time to be in charge. On the other hand, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. People still have to kiss your ass. So you can see the upside. But who in their right mind would want to be mayor of Detroit? It's a job where one of the better possible outcomes is going to jail for covering up a sex scandal. Well, at least 18 people are interested in the gig. Yeah, 18. Amazing.
