I can't believe I forgot to post this earlier...last Game Night, warpdragon and I came up with an absolutely brilliant idea for the upcoming election.

Colin Powell for President. James Earl Jones for Vice-President.

Think about it - someone the majority of the American people respect in office, and the voice of Darth Vader for the official speeches. The vice-presidential debates would be the highlights of the campaign. They'd appeal to moderates on both sides of the divide, and and's James frickin' Earl Jones, for crying out loud! Their campaign slogan could be something simple, like "Because we're just cooler than the other guys."

I'm very tempted to write a letter to Mr. Jones and ask him to run with Colin Powell (writing to him rather than to Powell directly, because there'd be a better chance that he'd actually see the letter - his handlers would probably give it to him out of sheer entertainment). I'm just not sure how to word it..."Please, sir, you two are our only hope?" "C'mon, what else have you got to do for the next four years?"

Wouldn't it be a beautiful thing?
