OK. I know this sounds crazy at first, and I actually broached the subject as a joke to my wife last night. But the more I joked about it the more I started to convince myself it could actually work:
Jeb Bartlett from the "West Wing" for President
Yes, yes. I know he's a character on a show. But Martin Sheen knows this character REALLY REALLY well. Why couldn't we vote for Martin Sheen contingent upon his acting like Bartlett, not himself. Sheen's got this character down cold - he could play the part 24 hours a day for 4 years. Hire the whole writing staff, they could help him stay in character.
Yes, silly ... but sometimes i wonder ...
