Todd Martin, or David Wheaton. That is, among American-born players. Otherwise, Pat Rafter all the way.

*Reads above post*

You know, I feel stupid about responding to a duckfan in such a matter, but you should feel much more stupid for that post.

Roddick is a Bush lover. Forget about him. He's thinking like Bush. He would be the worst.

35 is the minimum age, and you must be a natural born citizen.

There isn't one single tennis player that I would 'think' would be a good President because I don't know how any of them feel about all of the issues or their ability to handle such a job. I will say that due to their extensive travel and exposure to other cultures, I would think all of them have the potential to bring a unique knowledge to the job. I like to joke that I would vote for Graydon Oliver for Pres, but that's just because I'm very fond of him and I like his character. Don't know a thing about his politics.

oooh!!! Blake! he went to Harvard, very smart man, i assume.

LOL, okay, Sue Ellen, when you have 35 for the minmum age then Andy is a little bit far away to discuss this now :lol: Also I don't think he would have the "skills" to become a good President anyway.

that's indeed true what you say about Blake that he is smart man. I believe that, too.

I hope to see him back next year again. He had quite a sad year with many setbacks and personal issues.

Oh James is VERY intelligent. So is Brian Vahaly. And Todd Martin. He'd be my pick, he seems so diplomatic.

But Neely don't remind me of James's horrific year :sad:

:hug: for James

America isn't even open to a woman leader. There is no way in hell a black man will be elected anytime soon. :rolleyes:

This is rather unfortunate, seeing that other nations do have women as leaders and people of different ethnicities.

If you want an intelligent man as a president, then I'd say Paul Haarhuis.

Otherwise I'd say Marat. The world would rock and party in peace ;)

LOL Ilhame!! But seriously - I have the impression that Marat is actually quite an intelligent person. He has matured a lot in the last 2 years, I mean he had a lot of time last year to think about his tennis and everything else, he himself said it. And I'll never forget how Shamil Tarpischev praised Marat and said that he's a great listener so it was very easy with him at the DC matches. And he can behave very well if he wants, and he has the kindest heart. :angel: And he's actually not partying much at all any more. :p
