"Any boy can become President in America.  It's one of the risks he takes" Adlai Stevenson.  

Well, it's that time again.  Americans are getting ready to pick their next president.  Or the same President.  Or maybe a stray bullet will come through the window.  The American Presidency is a unique position of power, arguably the most powerful person in world history with command of the biggest military, richest economy and he can go to as many San Jose Sharks games as he wants for free.  But how do you become president? 

It's a long, complicated and stupid process full of insanity like walking caucuses, deep fried butter, begging for money, super delegates, maybe getting screwed over by Ivy League mercenaries and making a fool of yourself on TV.  So join us as we start the long and rocky road to the Oval Office.  Or you lose and go back to your office.  Or maybe you'll get shot.
