Notes from Crew Quarters: Our Presidential Picks
This week's Notes from Crew Quarters question: With the imminent presidencies of Donald Trump and Kanye West on the horizon, which celebrity/public figure you would want to run for president?
James Dyer, Associate Nonfiction Editor
Could it be anyone other than Martin Sheen? I mean, he's really the only option, right?
Deziree’ Brown, Associate Poetry Editor
John LaPine, Associate Nonfiction Editor
Honestly? Kanye West.
Annie Bilancini, Associate Fiction Editor
Prince. So then historians could refer to his presidency as the Purple Reign. It would be worth it for that one joke.
Ethan Brightbill, Associate Fiction Editor
Natalie Portman. She's educated and levelheaded, and between her progressive views on Israel and holding dual citizenship, I think she could actually get both sides to play nice over there.
Jacque Boucher, Spoken Word Poetry
Susan Sarandon. I feel like we're due for a president that's just, like, suuuuuper chill, you know?
Greg Beamish, Associate Nonfiction Editor
Paul Newman as Cool Hand Luke.
Sophia Jouet Novak, Intern
Oprah Winfrey. I love her, and she is perfect.
