(All The President's Men)
The Giants visit to the White House this week got me thinking, "Wouldn't Buster Posey make an awesome president?" After all, his character and professionalism embodies what's good about baseball, so couldn't that translate in some constructive way to the world of politics? If anything, he'd stand in stark contrast to the filth so regularly associated with politicians (see Weiner scandal).
Anyways, the Giants organization thinks he has the right stuff since they ran a mock presidential campaign last year with their Posey For President t-shirts. Unfortunately, Posey would have to be 9 years older (per the US Constitution) to be legitimately elected as leader of the free world.
Out of curiosity though, if Posey did run for elected office after his baseball career was over, would you vote for him? If so, what office would you like to see him run for?
