Today, I Voted For Cloud Strife For President Of The USA

Okay, no I didn't. But can you imagine what sort of president Cloud would make? Or maybe pick your own video game character to lead...

Let's see, Cloud would probably be pretty...um...quiet. You'd really have to force him to get up in front of large groups of people, and one can't be certain of his reading ability. But what he lacks as an orator he'll make up for with his very presence. Just seeing him stand on that podium would be an expression of power; it would be comforting and that image could make us all sleep well at night. Hell, it should probably go on the one-dollar bill.

He'd make a pretty good politician because his memory is a little hazy. That's important. "Wait, what exactly happened at Nibelheim? Did I do something? Or do I have to get revenge for something someone else did?" Yeah, that fits perfectly. Plausible deniability when it comes to big-time international flaps. And hey, here's the best part- Who needs the armed forces? It isn't necessary to send thousands to their deaths; just get a half-dozen super-powerful people to aid Cloud, make sure he's got a big-ass sword, and just let them go. We'll sit back and watch and try not to get in the way. "Over there! Bad guys went thataway!"

Last but not least, Cloud Strife stands behind his convictions. He gets the job finished. ...and he has Omnislash. Win.

Solid Snake should win it because he's one of the few that can operate with out Patriot influence. And he won't nuke the place for the sake of a simply EMP shock not unlike is semi brother tried to do.

Considering what happened to Olympus, I'm sure administration would have reservations about appointing Kratos...ya know, because he killed his last boss, and his entire cabinet.

Dude, I didn't power level the first time so Omnislash was brand new and given to me upon the Sephiroth battle and that made it oh so sweet.

I feel really good about voting today, the election is called, it's all done and it feels good to stand up and be counted after all the hooplah and nonsense.

Game character for prez? Elena Fisher. She's adventurous but still thoughtful and careful, has people's best interests at heart, and is a strong woman.

VP: Cole MacGrath

Secy Defense: Max Payne

I'm glad the US voted against the zombie apocalypse. Heck, at least your president actually HAS a plan. I mean, geeze, how'd Romney expect to win with a secret plan that will work in 8-10 years... a timeline he never has to see through to the end. sheesh.... Canadians mocked him up and down the media like it was going out of style. Just... bad politician. lol.

I agree with you... He is too Emo to be president. I can imagine how his speech will turn out... an hour of dead silent while he day dream about Aerith. The only thing you will see him do is mumble to himself, "i cant protect anyone, how can i run a country?"
But he might win the debate, all he have to do is pull out his 10 feet sword and show it to the other guy and there wouldnt be a debate at all. I agree is will make a great secretary of defense.

Sorry underdog, no they won't.

He's already had 4 years to prove or at least show us something, anything, and he's consistently has done absolutely zero towards the betterment of America.


"Congratulations America!"

You have just authorized millions more illegals to enter the United States,

you have given Obama the right to make more Executive Orders so he can bypass the laws of Congress,

You have given him an unlimited checkbook that will drown us, our kids, grand-kids & our great-grand kids in the quagmire of debt,making the US to indebted to China,

and will most probably lead to major terrorists being released to make his overseas contributors happy(just like his Benghazi cover-up).

You have authorized the King tyrant o-bomination to load up his offices with more useless czars.

But that's OK, for real.....

You guys & gals who re-voted him in again, can just back to happily relaxing, while you're once again drinking gallons more of the obamanation administration's & his lame-stream media's, homemade Kool-Aid.



Meanwhile, because I'm a true non-entitlement demanding Democrat, one that truly believes in his rights & freedoms, I'll be working tirelessly along with millions more just like me who also believe in the U.S. Constitution & our U.S. Bill Of Rights just as I do.

And we WILL work tirelessly to overthrow this illegal foreign-born squatter from OUR White House & then charge him, and his real boss(valerie jarrett), with lies, fraud, & treason for for giving away our tclassified secrets to the enemy, & for the blood on his hands concerning his Benghazi cover-up, among many other things.

Saint, I know your situation isn't better, but it takes a long time to erase 30+ years of bad government (although Clinton did a good job outside his loose pant fly) but it is the biggest issue has been opposition in the house which is on the republicans. also, things are getting better. Things are getting secure, and they will go upwards only if Obama keeps doing what he's doing. Also, you're national debt us lower. It went up after Obama took over, yes, but it then went down. Non partisan sources are your friends, fyi.

You guys, and many in Canada got fricked over because of bush. That's fact.

Besides Zach is more charasmatic and personable. And more heroic too in my opinion if thats what we are going for.

But seriously, Cloud undergoes a massive personal journey of self-discovery to go from zero to hero. Zack just is who he is, a nice guy who does the right thing.

Much as I love video game characters, I can't think of any who would be qualified (in a modern world at least) to be president of the USA.
Too much anger, too much depression.
First of all, they'd have to be American, which would slim it down considerably.
Snake, Drake, Sully, GTA characters (heaven forbid).
