Better Than Obama #03: Capitan Jean Luc Picard
Depicted as deeply moral, highly logical and intelligent, Captain Jean Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise is a master of diplomacy and debate who resolves seemingly intractable issues between multiple parties with a Solomon-like wisdom. Though such resolutions are usually peaceful, Picard is also shown using his remarkable tactical cunning in situations when it is required. Picard has a fondness for detective stories, Shakespearean drama, and archeology. He is frequently shown drinking Earl Grey tea and issuing an order by saying “Make it so.” Part of Picard’s private nature includes a difficulty in confronting deep personal issues, which then tend to become suppressed. Philosophically, he sees life and death as more than two choices of eternal or momentary existence; in fact, he believes there is another concept yet beyond human understanding. A powerful leader who could take us into the next generation and beyond, Captain Jean Luc Picard for President!
