Dilbert creator wants Bill Gates for President

Who would you rather have on your side?

THE INVENTOR OF the IT cartoon strip Dilbert, Scott Adams wants to see Bill Gates as the next President of the United States of America.

Writing in his bog, Adams says that it was time to see an atheist business leader emerge as a legitimate candidate for president.

Adams doubted that Gates was considering a presidential run, largely because it's so hard to make a difference being President. But Adams thinks in a term or two Gates will have done so much good for the world through his charitable works that combined with his business success he'll appear more qualified than any other candidate.

Naturally, there would be some problems with the Gate's campaign. His early bachelor life and some of his business practices will come back to haunt him if he runs. But Adams reckons that Gates will confess to shafting the world through the Microsoft empire he created and say that presidents are poor choices for role models anyway.

Gates will advise you to look to your parents for role models while you let him run the country. Gates will probably runs on the slogan 'who would you rather have on your side?'

As Adams points out, at least you would know he wouldn't be in it for the money or to speed up the second coming. Of course, we would be more worried that he would want Steve Ballmer as the Vice President. µ
