Belichick in the Big Chair


Bill Belichick gets my vote for President. He's the ultimate cool practitioner of realpolitik, a pragmatist more wedded to results than ideology. He doesn't blink under pressure, he's unswerving in temperament, and he's got proven executive experience. You want the guy who sits in the Big Chair to be able to make a tough call, and to execute an overall vision. Finally, foreign powers respect and even fear him.

Belichick would be a great President. He does a good job cheating and lying. Those are some of the most valued traits if you wish to be President of the United States.

Bill Belichick, the Patriots head coach?!

WHAT, are you just as insane as Bill O'Really?!?! Belichick wouldn't have the proper temperment for Washington D.C. politics. He would HIDE his entire cabinet on the *injured* list ALL the time. Only allow his press secretary to address the press corps once a week. And keep his V.P. hunkered down in the *Bunker* 24 x 7.....
