If I were president...

If you were President/Prime Minister for a day, with the power to do absolutely anything (Supreme Court? What Supreme Court?), what would you do and why?
I say this with gravity: I hope that day never comes.

However, for sake of argument, if I were President I would get the best thinkers of the day together to find solutions to create a vision to act upon. I love the idea of Vaclav Havel becoming a leader in the former Czechoslovakia. I would cleanse the government of corporate influence. Include artists, doctors, architects, urban planners, economists, educators, etc. into my cabinet...and then, of course, rock the world!...or at least the U.S.

I was really surprised to see so many people reluctant to have all that power. Looking at it, though, it just goes to show the high esteem we all hold democracy in.

Very ambitious for one day, but good ideas.
