It's Election Day, and unless some uniquely terrifying, 2012 version of the "hanging chad" keeps the results in doubt long past election night, America will likely know whether President Obama or Governor Romney is victorious by midnight.
No matter who the victor is, a lot of people are going to be thrilled, and nearly as many will be disappointed. Sound familiar? Elections are a lot like sports—we love the competition, we love teams and individual athletes, but we hate to lose.
Unfortunately, when there is a winner, there has to be a loser. That's just how the world operates.
What better way to both celebrate the democratic process and soothe the wounds of those who came up short than by imagining what athletes we would love to see in the Oval Office? This is an election where everybody wins, because it's pure fantasy, and our brains aren't being pulverized by political ads.
So, exercise your right and vote. Then come back here and join me in looking at the 25 athletes we want as president.
