Robert Gates for President?

by Maverick W.

Bob Gates has been a man whom I've looked up to these past years. He told Congress about Iraq exactly the way it was without the bias. And he has been the SecDef for a Republican absolutely hated on the left and a Democrat absolutely hated on the right. 

He was an Intel officer in the Air Force who briefed Intercontinental Ballistic Missile crews, an Eagle Scout in his youngster days, was the 16th Deputy Director of Central Intelligence and is an Independent politician.

I was thinking, wouldn't he be great for a future Modern Whig presidential ticket?
