Should I Run for President??

From vlogbrothers.

I think there is something important inside the fact that "generic democrat" does better against Trump than any actual Democrat that. The thing about being a real person existing in the real world is that people get to build themselves up by tearing you down. We have a media environment now that is so competitive and so valuable (both in dollars and in status) that an content that can get made will absolutely get made. That’s just not good for people polling better than "just some guy."

I promise you, the moment I started running for office, lots of people would start to like me less because I would be examined from an entirely different (and far less flattering) kind of apparatus. Luckily for all of us, I have no interest in that both because I am far too busy doing things I am very excited about and because it sounds absolutely miserable.
