In 2008, news rang that Paris Hilton was running for President. A music video “Paris for President” was released which examined her views. I compiled a list of 10 things she would implement. Some of these ideas are taken after what she loves and obsesses about.
1. No Prison Terms for Celebrities:
She was sentenced to 45 days in prison in 2007 for repeated infractions with driving under influence and reckless driving. She was released from prison half way through her sentence on a medical condition discharge. She was to finish her sentence under house arrest. Given the big uproar, she was sent back to prison, unwillingly. She thought it was unfair.
2. Energy Reform:
She would combine both Obama and McCain’s ideas for energy reform in response to the energy crisis. She would have both off shore oil drilling and dependency on foreign oil.
3. National Dog Day:
Hilton is a dog lover. She has three dogs; two Chihuahuas and one Yorkshire Terrier. She has created an apparel line for dogs and is often seen walking with her dog Tinkerbell. When Tinkerbell went missing, she put out a reward for $5000. Her fanaticism for dogs would likely lead to the creation of a national dog day, if elected president.
4. Pink White House:
Paris Hilton loves pink. She dresses in pink clothing and also clothes her dogs in pink. She even had a pink car, the Bentley, which got smashed backing into another car. The damage was worth $5000. If she were to become President, the White House would probably be the Pink House from that point on. An excellent and innovative idea, don’t you think?
5. Tax Incentives for Hybrid and Electric Cars:
This in her opinion would also reduce the dependency on off shore drilling of oil.

The moves of George W. Bush are being assessed based on leadership, decisiveness, foreign standing, crisis management and vision. Bush may not have been popular, but he was elected twice. His job was not the easiest and he did succeed in the following 10 areas.
1. No Child Left Behind:
The act was passed in 2001 by George W. Bush when he took office. It affected all students who attended the public school system. Funding for education since the act increased from $42.2 million to $54.4 million. Standardized tests were implemented to assess student learning. Schools doing poorly would be provided with assistance from the federal government.
2. Aid to Africa:
In 2003, Bush sent $15 billion dollars of aid to Africa to help prevent AIDS in the region. He was very popular in the region as a result. He furthermore contributed to advancing the United Nations millennium project.
3. Lift Ban on Off-Shore Drilling:
Oil Prices rose in 2003. Bush took action by lifting the ban on off-shore drilling. This ban allowed US to use the oil on their property. This action reduced oil prices by 20 cents. In the short term, it was effective.
Bush was faced with the reality of war on September 11, 2011. He put his nation’s security as the top level of concern. Many people did not agree with his war policies, but cannot say that airports did not feel safer knowing shoes were being checked, hats were being x-rayed and bottles of liquid were not being allowed on planes. No major security breaches occurred after 9/11.
Bush worked to the last day and spent his closing days as President assisting Israelis and Palestinians in drawing up a ceasefire. His policies were anti-terrorist and he took no chance with Iraq and Iran.
