Who would be your pick if you had to choose a hollywood star for President?
 
Why do we sometimes elect hollywood stars? such as Ronald Regan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sonny Bono, Fred Dalton Thompson, etc.

Who would be your pick if you had to choose a hollywood star for President?

I'll go first. For me it would be a toss up between Dennis Miller or else Gary Sinise.

I don't think that Ahnold would be too bad, imo.

If it weren't for the requirements, I seriously imagine him at least running for president in 2008 or later.

Ronald Reagan
 
That's an interesting question. Ronald Reagan had the gift of being a great communicator. When the Democrat controlled congress wouldn't go his way heis up would get in front of the camera and tell the people what he wanted to do and why. Unfortunatly Bush does not have that skill. i dont know if there is a star out there now that is up to the task.

Too bad "the Duke" is no longer with us. President Wayne sounds pretty good to me. I'd even be ok with a woman Vice President Hepburn

OR better yet, Steve Martin. His campaign opener -"My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi."

Actually, as governor, he was an excellent debater and had amazing abilities as a public speaker. As for his content: that's debatable in itself.

There's no doubt he's aged since then, and maybe his extreme drug record in his past has caught up with him (I don't do coke, don't ask me for that info) and he's also becoming less able to say what he wants (not that I think he has much to say or an opinion for himself anymore) without being dogged by press and citizens.

I would choose George C. Scott
