Tiger Woods For President

I used my Obama joke too often - that we should have him run a golf tournament or something before we let him run the country. A coworker, likely a Democrat, narrowed his eyes and said "No, you're confusing Obama with Tiger Woods," implying a they-all-look-alike racism on my part.

Well, he may be onto something, but here's the thing. Tiger Woods would make a great president. He'd have to study up on the material for a few years, but it's hard not to admire his focus. They make a big deal about how martial artist Vladimir Putin ate George Bush's lunch. Putin has apparently been eating part of the lunch of everyone on the Eurasiatic continent. I like Tiger's chances in a duel of nerves against Putin. Against anyone.

He already knows how to deftly answer stupid questions. He is able to ruthlessly critique himself. What's not to like here?

You may have a point. He has certainly been quite analytical about his golf game. He is no Babe Ruth, but a wunderkind who has worked hard to get where he is. However, why would someone who makes in less a week what a President makes in a year want the grief of such a job?
