Nah. Why take a stab at doing anything when you can get paid a lot more for complaining about things?
One day, I'll probably vote for a woman to be president. One day I might even vote for a Republican. But neither of those people will ever be Sarah Palin. (For that matter, I wouldn't have voted for Hillary Clinton as president, either.)

Both Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter were very intelligent individuals.
I hated Richard Nixon but he did soem pretty astute things as President and if Watergate wasn't in there, he would likely be viewed as a great president for China, detente, and a lot of moderate progressive achievements.
That is true of part of Africa. Other parts are verdant and resource rich, see Nigeria. The world is missing the boat by not aiding these peoples towards peace, security, eductation, and economic development.
