So if the Republicans pass a consitutional amendment banning a lawyers from running for President, then the race will be Richardson vs. McCain! Must not have enough lawyers in the southwest!

No bald non-lawyers need apply. Unless they are actors, of course. Actors trump everybody.

In fact, many of the Founding Fathers (including Jefferson if I am not mistaken) recognized that political leadership would come largely from the legal profession and they endorsed that fact. They felt that since lawyers were learned, thoughtful, and yes also driven and egotistical, they would be an asset to public service and fill most of its ranks.

Medicare is cutting pay to doctors in 2008, well Dictator Bush first cut childrens healthcare costs and now the Dictator is going to cut pay for the ones that take of the children when sick, and while I am on the subject of sick this silly bastard sure is HAIL BUSH! And here all this time I thought he was on cocaine but I was wrong it is crack cocaine because federal guidelines now say and approved by the Dictator that start lowering the sentance range if caught with this drug-- two faced DICTATOR.

Land Surveyors would be president. That was the occupation of Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln before they took up residence on Pennsylvania Avenue. Not a bad place to start.

Steven Colbert. Oh wait, we already have a comedian (or was that clown) as our President.

If you want politicians, i.e. people who write and administer the law, who aren't trained in law, you get Dubya.

Wait, Thompson was an actual prosecutor in addition to playing one on tv?

What about those drawings of the candidates? What's with the WSJ and their artistic conception that is something like a penciled sketch of what someone would look like on money? Is that accurate? Well, anyhow they are being very kind and flattering with Hillary, although she looks something like a local TV news reporter. Thompson, eek. He looks like Freddie Kruger.
