Could You Be President? This Interactive Quiz Will Help You Figure Out Whether To Quit Your Day Job In Time For 2020
Whatever you think about Donald Trump, his haphazard, tone-deaf campaign is a beacon of hope. Since preschool, you've been told that it takes a very special person, intelligent and empathetic and scrupulously fair, to stand a chance at becoming president. Not so! Thanks to The Donald spewing several months' worth of nonsense about Making America Great Again, you and I and our children and grandchildren now know that pretty much anyone can run for president. No politics experience and a Twitter page filled with your oddest thoughts? That's fine! Not totally sure what Samuel Adams did, or what NATO means? Who cares? If Donald Trump can do it, you can almost certainly run for president, too!
Well — almost certainly. Thanks to those pesky forefathers of ours, there are a few prerequisites in place if you're hoping to take over from Hillary in 2020 or 2024. (And I'm hoping you are, because the Donald will certainly be vying once more to take over the throne when she — or, OK, Jeb Bush, or Bernie Sanders, or, Scott Walker — leaves it.) Regardless, if you're keen to try your hand at running the free world, there's no reason why you shouldn't. I mean, Barack Obama was once allegedly a member of the "Choom Gang" — the guy invented something called "Roof Hits" — for God's sake. And even though your preschool teacher was wrong about the kinds of characters who would be running for president when you were grown-up, he or she was not wrong about one thing: You can be absolutely anything you want to be.
So, wanna see if you could be president? Of course you do...
