10 Names We Wish Were On The Ballot
This election has Americans choosing between the lesser of two evils. What if we didn’t have to though? Here at TDT we compiled a list of people that would get our vote 100% if they decided to run for President.
Running Mate: Jay-Z
If Donald Trump can seriously challenge for President are you really going to argue with me that Ms. Knowles-Carter and her hubby couldn’t run away with it? As we’ve seen this year more than any other, politics are popularity contest. Is there anyone more beloved than Beyoncé? I’ll wait.
2. Barack Obama
Running Mate: OG Biden
The old saying goes you don’t know how good you got it ’till it’s gone. Barack, Barry, Mr. Obama; even your most ardent haters have to admit that you did an admirable job of cleaning up the mess that President Bush left for you. Sure, there was no breakthough that magically made America Utopian, but all things considered we could be a lot worse off. Pleaseeeeee give us one more term while we straighten everything out.
3. Michelle Obama
Running Mate: Jill Biden
While Barack was holding down the Oval Office, Michelle has been building a legacy of her own. The First Lady was built an influencing rivaling that of Eleanor Roselevt. Seeing Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden clique up just seems right.
4. Snoop Dogg
Running Mate: Martha Stewart
First things first, under President Snoop we know that weed would be legalized. Snoop is beloved by Americans from the hoods to the burbs. For those on the fence we have Martha Stewart campaigning through the cities with cakes and pies, can’t lose right?
5. Mays Gilliam
Running Mate: Mitch Gilliam
Mays won the Presidency in 2003’s Head of State, but I’d give anything to see him do it in 2016. While Barack Obama was our first black President, Mays would be our first BLACK President. Mays honesty was the key to him becoming Head of State, that honesty is something sorely lacking in our two remaining candidates.
6. Waka Flocka
Running Mate: Ric Flair
President Flocka has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? Wait, actually I think Ric Flair would be President because Flocka is too young. In that case President Flair is the type of man to strut his way over to the Middle East, put ISIS in a Figure Four Leglock, and make those bastards tap out to the power of patriotism. WOOOOOOOOOOO!
7. Erykah Badu
Running Mate: Questlove
On the other hand we’d have world peace on deck if Ms. Badu is running things. Once a week you would need to have to have your chahkra’s examined under fedearal law, so there’s no doubt that our nation’s mental health would experience prosperity.
Running Mate: Gayle King
It seems like if you’re rich and poppin’ you can get the Presidential nod right? Nobody is touching Oprah on either of those fronts.
9. Black Bush
Running Mate: Ashy Larry
10. Kanye West
Running Mate: Pusha T
C’mon you know you would vote for Kanye just to see him rant at every State of The Union Adress. At first glance you’d think that Jay Z would be Kanye’s running mate however, we felt that G.O.O.D. Music Prez Pusha T made more sense for the position.
