    He's bald, he's got a really nasal voice, he's got a weird name, he looks like the guy you used to copy during math tests in middle school...

    But he's really, really funny in a deadpan way, he's brilliant, and he's got this weird charisma about him if you actually listen to him long enough and give him a chance. Of course, I've seen him for a year or two on Red Eye, and he's been great on there, so that effects my view of him.

    I don't think he's electable to POTUS, but it's speculated that he'll be announcing soon.

    What do you guys think of him? Have you seen him on Red Eye, and did that effect your POV of him?

    It's time for a president with a name from the 1830s.

    Gutfeld/Levy - Kingmakers. I like the sound of that.


    Plus, he's a rock guitarist. About time we had one of those in office.


    I don't know that much about him, but yes, something about a guy who can routinely go on a show like Red Eye is sits well with me.

    i'm always a little happier when he's on the redeye panel. I'd vote for him, how bad could it turn out.

    A name like Thaddeus McCotter says "I'm in charge of something." I like it.

    If he starts talking about hope and change...he's got my vote. I love hope and change.

    I don't think atrocious grammar is indicative of Presidental material. Since when is the number 4 considered a word in the Queen's English? Would we want Beerbelly as president?

    Aside from Romney he'd probably make the best POTUS out of anyone currently running or considering running from either party.

    I just wish the 22nd Amendment had never been ratified and Bill was still POTUS

    I'm going with "Nay." Interesting he endorsed Romney so quickly. Somebody's jockeying for an appointment...

    Well here is enough evidence to show I wouldn't have voted for him:

    Not the best candidate, not the best for the country, the most electable. Great way to vote for the leader of the free world.
