Dealing in the realm of pure fantasy, I would like to see Cornel West as U.S. President. It would be nice to have a person of true intellect in the White House.
A "true intellect." LOL!!! Can we look forward to his annual State of the Union rap?
When you have a command of Continental as well as the Anglo-American philosophical tradition, have held tenured faculty positions at four or more Ivy League univerisities, lectured internationally, authored and edited dozens of books for both the academy and the general population, you have earned the right to use rap as a pedagogical vehicle.
Heck, his command and mastery of the English language alone would be a breath of fresh air compared to the butchery and stupidity of Dubya the Village Idiot aka Shrub "Chimpy" Bush.
