In the next few days we’ll be zooming in on some of the opinions people have been spreading on the net about the whole “Bill-Gates-for-President-Bandwagon”. Here’s an excerpt from a blog entry earlier on today that caught our eye from the Times Online News Log:
President Gates of the United States. Do you like the way that sounds? Because you are not alone. A cause doing the rounds of the internet this week – admittedly where you would expect to find his base – is for Bill Gates to run for President in 2008, or any time he wants to.
It took us a moment to get used to the idea, but then we wondered why we hadn’t thought of it before. The Microsoft man has done computers; he’s done capitalism; he’s doing as much as anyone to get on top of HIV / Aids and Malaria; so why not the White House?
