    If only your pick mattered, which person alive now (who is also eligible) would be your ideal choice or close to your ideal choice for President? Explain why.

    For starters, it would be nice to have a president who's not a war criminal.

    I don't think it matters who the president is until congress (and the electorate by extension) have a more unified agenda.

    I am sure I will get ridiculed for this, but I think Oprah Winfrey would do nicely.

    - A multi billionaire (real one) who did it on her own. Came from literally less than nothing. Built a fairly classy company and charity that treats customers and employees well and does a lot of good.

    -She actually could fund her own campaign
    - I suspect she would have a left of center platform, but not absurdly so. Right where I am at.
    -She knows how to handle herself in front of a camera and audience.
    - Very connected already with prominent people and other world leaders.
    -She has a HUGE, very loyal support base already. She could easily get elected.

    I think James Mattis would do a good job. He would probably do sone things i disagree with, but he is a very fair person and not corrupt. Also doesnt seem the type to be bought.

    I don't need or want a leader so I would vote for myself. I also don't like to follow so there is no way I would listen to a thing I said or did.

    Oprah has zero relevant experience, though. I'm kind of gathering that that's the point of the thread--who would you pick who isn't running or likely to run? And Oprah's a fine choice given that, but I doubt she'd be as good as someone like Clinton.

    For me, he might have too much baggage, but I'd like to see Gavin Newsom take a shot eventually. Jerry Brown would be good. Among non-politicians, I suppose Buffett would be the best pick that I know of (and if I had to pick a conservative non-politician, it would be Munger).
