Looking Ahead to 2024

Yes, we can out-muscle Putin (
Turned off by our choices for President? It's too late for this year, but....Time: Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson Is Not Ruling Out a Presidential Run:
“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out,” he said. “I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring."
The Rock didn't make these comments impulsively. He's been thinking about politics for a while. From 2012:
"Right now the best way that I can impact the world is through entertainment. One day, and that day will come, I can impact the world through politics," Johnson — whose latest film, "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," opens Friday — tells the site. "The great news is that I am American, therefore I can become President."
Natural-born citizen? Born in Hayward, California.

Age? 44 (born May 2, 1972)

Constitutional requirements? check.

In the media age one has to be able to speak well, but there don't seem to be other gotta-haves. It helps to be wealthy, beautiful, somewhat ideologically consistent, and politically experienced, but we can all point to successful candidates who lacked one or more of the above.

By the way, the Rock's political affiliation is Republican.

Aren't you tired of people who talk tough? This guy is tough. The slogans write themselves.
