Dwayne Johnson says he might want to run for president. He could actually win.

The prospect of The Rock sitting through committee hearings might be vaguely ridiculous, and a governorship would probably require him to take fewer potentially damaging votes. But the lesson of this year in American politics is that stranger things can always happen. And Trump is proof that if our politics are turning into reality-television competitions, the results could always be worse.

Just one word: WHAT!?

What kind of Statesman/President do you think Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would be? I'm torn, but he certainly has my vote over the likes of either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. I am positive a majority here will join me in that.

He certainly couldn't do any worse than that socialist, big gov't loving human vegetable, Ronald Reagan.

In any normal election cycle I would laugh at the idea. But given who he would be running against? He would stand a chance. People actually like him.

Sounds like it's not really a thing for this election.

But I'd probably vote for him if he had a much more significant chance than Jill Stein. Anything but Trump or Clinton.

We've had a comedian and a fake wrestler in congress. The GOP candidate is an embarrassing disaster. I wouldn't be surprised to see that guy throw his hat in the ring.
