This election cycle giving you the blues? I hear you. So, I thought it might be fun to play a little game where we cast our ballots for our dream President(s) who aren't currently politicians.
So, I'll start: I'm going with Mike Rowe.
I've always been a fan of him, and how his career basically started as a dare. From an interview:
I was in the opera at the time. I walked across the street with a buddy of mine (during a performance) - we're dressed as Vikings and we have a drink. The TV is turned to QVC. ... My buddy bets me $100 I can't get a call back. So ... I crashed the audition and got a job on the spot. I basically turned the whole thing into my own stupid David Letterman show - I made fun of the callers and made fun of the products.
If that wasn't enough to convince me, his Ted Talk on what he learned from Dirty Jobs is pure brilliance, and I think it should be mandatory viewing for high school graduates.
Who's next? There are plenty out there...
