With the recent elections of Dave Bing as the Mayor of Detriot and the death of former quarterback-turned-Congressman Jack Kemp, and how boring the US political scene is now (sorry Obama may be cool, but he's still just a politician), I thought it would be interesting to see which athletes would make excellent US Statesmen (and women).

Imagine the House or Senate floor, filled to capacity as McEnrore and the No. 2 person on the list debate. The FCC would have a blast
And you think our president has charisma? With his offbeat remarks and outrageous monologues, Shaq would be the perfect representative in Congress.
American foreign policy will never be the same.

Alabama brace yourself: Barkley is committed to running for the governorship in 2013. Why not Barkley? Think about politicians who we already have spouting their mouths (Clinton, Romney, Huckabee, John Edwards, his wife, etc).
None will be as funny as Barkley. Even as governor, I really don't see him changing his ways.
Because we all need that extra reason to watch CSPAN.
