I look forward to hearing your thoughts on our next President.  Does America always need a  "WOW Factor" during an election now?  The WOW in Obama was that he was the 1st black president... BIG DEAL.... so what's the WOW this year, the first Jew or the first Mormon?  If race was the biggest challenger in 2008, will religion be the biggest "WOW" in 2012?

Considering the 17 republican candidates that actually participate in the debate - 10 participants and the 7 different voices in Michelle Bachmann's head - there's not one of them that impresses me.  As to a WOW factor, maybe they should give more coverage to Republican candidate Jimmy "The Rent's Too Damn High" McMillan.

The real WOW factor will be if Americans keep a literate person in the Oval Office, as opposed to someone from a group that is engaged in a race to the bottom.

The wow factor will be if we acheive separation of church and state and regulation of tax dollars.

We're not voting for the next American Idol. We're voting for the President of the country. I think the real problem in this country is, everyone views the election like it's a fucking reality game show and the winner wins a trophy and a cash prize. Let's not forget that the "winner" has a HUGE job to do. Winning is only the beginning. That said, the real "wow" factor should be the most intelligent and effective person. Not the most self-righteous asshole. As far as I'm concerned the "next" President will be the same one we have now.

Does there need to be a "wow" factor at all ... other than what would be the REAL wow factor: someone who can get Congress to cooperate with them and actually GET SOMETHING DONE!

That said, pretty much regardless of what the GOP comes up with, Barack still gets my vote!
