Before Bill Gates retired in order to change the world, he built Microsoft into a powerhouse. Sure, Microsoft's having a bit of a rough time of it today, but you can't blame Bill for that. More to the point, Mr. Gates has become one of the greatest philanthropists in history, and with a level of caring about the health of the world that would be good to see sitting behind the Resolute desk.

I have made no secret of my general distaste for Facebook, but Zuckerberg has proven he can unite the world. With about a billion users, Zuckerberg and Facebook have probably brought together more people on Planet Earth than anyone else in history. Given that we're so polarized in this country as it is, any unifying influence is a good thing.

R. Lee Ermey
If we can't all just get along by judicious use of social media, maybe former Marine Corps drill instructor "Gunny" R. Lee Ermey could whip us in shape. Americans (many of us are quite out of shape as it is) could benefit from Sarge's no-nonsense approach to getting things done. Besides, he'd scare the heck out of most politicians now in Washington.
