Co-Presidency Idea Gaining Steam

The issue that has dominated much of the news over the last month has been how to resolve the race for the Democratic nomination. Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Party, announced today an idea that is rapidly gaining steam among pundits and the public that would not only unify the party but would bring the best of both worlds to the table. According to Dean,

The DNC has proposed to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the creation of the office of co-president of the United States. This would allow both candidates to serve side-by-side in accordance with the public's wishes and also tap into the vast experience and wisdom these candidates possess. This type of compromise would send a clear signal to the world that the U.S. is doubly committed to peace efforts in the Middle East and a co-presidency could even serve as a model of how waring factions can work together for the good of the human race.

Although there are still many details to work out, specifically those dealing with the constitution, Dean is confident that a deal is imminent. The ticket in the fall would list both names together as President.

The only questions that remain is whose name would go first on the letterhead (Al Gore is quoted as preferring alphabetical ranking) and how to arrange the furniture in the oval office so that one president doesn't have a better view of the Rose garden over the other president.

Has to be an April Fool's because the sound of it is absolutely LUDICROUS!

After a quick google search it appears Mrs. Clinton has indicated she "was already a co-president."
