    He's obviously a very talented leader... but being a leader in one oganization might mean you're a horrible leader in another organization. I think he'd be way too much of a Tyrant to be the POTUS

    In general, I have to assume he's a raging liberal... so, again, no.

    I do however agree with his position on Teachers' Unions and the incredible damage they've inflicted on our education system:

    His health problems could disqualify him.

    But the idea of a sleek new well-designed America is pretty appealing.

    I don't get a U.S vote, but my answer still is no.

    I love the guy for what he does. He's just not the type to be the US president.

    Hell no, I don't think running a business should ever be considered good experience for political leadership.

    I agree 100% with Leekohler. It is a hell no.

    if SJ became president kiss your free will good bye. SJ would tell us what we want and will like from the government. We will not get any choice.

    I, for one, welcome our new Apple Incorporated overlords. With any luck we'll all be wearing jeans and mock turtle necks within a year.

    Just think of what Jobs would do for illegal immigration.

    Really, though, if it was the general election and he were up against the Queen of the Iquitarod, I might have to consider it.

    One thing's for sure... there would be tighter regulations on illegal apps trying to enter the country.

    Oh, of course, I'd vote for a talking turd over the Quitta from Wasilla.

    Actually, make that any turd, talking or otherwise.

    Nope, he's like a spoilt dictatorial teenager. Look at his spats in the press and via text - very unstatesman-like.

    He might cut it in the geek industry, but in a world of hardened statesmen. I just can't see it.

    Would it be so terrible for the President to be emailing people in the middle of the night? :D
