Should Stephen Colbert run for president in the 2020 presidential election?

  • I've known him all his life. Colbert would be a brilliant President.

    I've known Stephen since middle school. The man you see on television: intelligent, passionate, fair, kind, honest and hard working - is the truth of him. If anything, he is even more decent and humble in real life. I love our country and America could not possibly do better. He may yet save us all. Pray that he runs.

  • After GW I thought the country had learned its lesson. WRONG!

    GW can relax now, he is no longer the worst of the worst. We need a third party now. Enough with team politics both parties are paying the price for ego votes. Colbert has the brains of Obama with the added ability of being able to communicate to the common person. This country will not survive the path it is on, We must get off the team mentality, that is truly the only way America will be great again.

  • He is Clearly Qualified

    Although he uses it for comedy, Stephen displays an incredible ability to analyze political situations and knowledge of how the government, the constitution and foreign policy work. True, he wouldn't be allowed to continue running his show once in the white house, and maybe he would decline just because of that. However, he has incredible intelligence in the political field and would make an amazing president.

  • Yes, he's more qualified than most candidates would be.

    Despite being in the comedic realm, Colbert has spent an entire career monitoring politics and getting people engaged through comedy. It wouldn't be that hard for him to make a real transition into serious politics, and I would support him 100%. He would be a strong, confident leader and good representative of the USA both politically and culturally. He has every quality that successful candidates usually have, and in all the years he's been in the public eye, never one controversy. Colbert 2020!

  • Colbert for President!

    I've thought he should run for years. He is wickedly intelligent, incredibly likeable, seems to know all there is to know in politics, and would definitely be better than our current President elect. I am terrified of Trump and terrified by the idea of Kanye even running. Please, please Stephen! Run for president! You have my vote!

  • Of course he should run.

    He is not a bigot, sexist, idiot or embarrassment which obviously cannot be said about our president-elect, trumplethinskin. Attempt to apply any argument as to why one might think con man don will make an acceptable president and it justifies Colberts' future administration. One major difference between the two is Stephen wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Another important difference is he never bankrupted any businesses.

  • Stephen is the perfect American.

    Look at how he has responded to every political upset in the past 20 years. With passion, honesty, sincerity, wisdom, and a strong American spirit. Stephen has always given the people of this country perspective when politics got blurry. When politics leaves a bad taste in your mouth, Stephen Colbert is a cold glass of ginger ale. He is more informed on us politics than the current president-elect and will reach more voters than almost any other possible candidate coming in as a senator, rep, governor, or holder of any other higher office. He is the ideal candidate.

  • At this point, why not?

    The current Republican favourite is most widely known for his reality TV show. Kanye West says he plans to run in 2020. I don't know if this is true, but I heard Miley Cyrus announced she plans to run for president in the future. So really, how much harm could another celebrity do at this point?

  • I don't see it happening.

    Steven Colbert is not only grossly unqualified he would most likely treat his candidacy as a joke (which admittedly would be pretty funny). People mention President Trump, but remember he was a businessman. He ran a billion dollar business and that takes administration. I just don't see Colbert running. His show is funny though.

  • Stephen Colbert is a good comedian but that doesn't make him a good public servant.

    A good president is someone who cares about the population and wants to protect the nation and improve the lives of the people in the country. He is a good public servant. Stephen Colbert is a man who makes jokes at what is going on in popular culture. He should first show evidence that he can play the role of a strong public servant in a lesser role before trying to be president.

  • No, I'm sure he wasn't serious...

    He said several times that he wants to only run in South Carolina. So even if he gets a party to sponsors him and even if by some miracle he wins the South Carolina primary (which really isn't out of the realm of possibility) Without doing the primary's for the other 49 states means he would have no chance. But he is a Democrat that poses as a Republican on a show. If he'll actually go through with it then he will most likely be an independent.

  • Not quite qualified

    I understand that Stephen Colbert has a good grasp on what is happening in politics, and seems to have a good head on his shoulders. However, I don't think he is truly qualified to be President. I understand that this hasn't seemed to stop certain candidates this election cycle, but it just creates such a circus when a celebrity gets involved.
