So my sister and I agreed that Obi-Wan would make an awesome president. Called to serve, he would be fair-minded, compassionate, intelligent, and impossible to intimidate.
Qui-Gon would be a good VP but my sister and I came to the conclusion that Vice President wouldn’t be Qui-Gon’s chosen job. No, Qui-Gon would actually really love being the First Spouse. Think about it, he could passionately support social issues, tour the nation fighting illiteracy and AIDS, help out LGBTQIA youth and the poor, etc. But he would also be able to do all the traditional stuff of you know, redecorating the White House, showing up at political events at his husband’s side, and dealing with critical, obnoxious reporters — all with a new, I-don’t-give-a-fuck abandon and sense of fun. He’d encourage nationwide fitness through some archaic, oddball and slightly dangerous sport. He wouldn’t just write a book about his pet, he’d have an animal rights blog with pictures of all of his kittens AND updated info about animals needing rescue/adoption. He’d go to White House dinners wearing a trim, elegant blazer with a Save the Whales T-shirt. He’d go on a hunger strike for starving children around the world, and he would use his gift of sass to basically reduce his husband’s critics to jokes. Hey, you can’t impeach the First Spouse.
Also, this man would totally have the time of his life with the White House Easter Egg Roll.
