Let Me Be Your President

Well, not me. But all of the talk of presidential politics made me think. What if a regular guy were elected? The media likes the idea. Last year, the BBC ran a dramatic miniseries about a housewife who was elected Prime Minister of England.

So why not here?

One of my favorite baritones, singer/songwriter/comedian Mark Lowry, wrote this piece during the 2000 election season about running for the Oval Office. He makes some good points. Performed at the Kennedy Center in New York City.
