I'd rather have a celebrity who cares for this country rather than a corrupt career politician who only cares about their donors

I remember in 1976, I was talking to some woman who said if Elvis ran for President he would win. I told her she was nuts.

I admit now I was wrong.

Elvis would have won in a landslide.
The young Elvis or the old Elvis? (Remember the stamp debate?)
