I couldn't resist the 'Optimus Prime for President' t-shirt at Hot Topic this evening. But, it got me thinking two things... 1) Lots of us, particularly Botcon attenders, should buy these shirts, and then gather outside with "Prime in '08" signs and such. Say, Sunday afternoon at Botcon. 2) Who would Prime's running mate be? Ultra Magnus falls apart at the drop of a hat, Bumblebee is inexperienced, Ironhide doesn't have an original thought in his CPU, and Grimlock would eat the press. My pick? Silverbolt. He's shown leadership, diplomacy, and can bring in the 'jet' vote. He's not a political insider or one of Prime's typical 'cronies,' and he knows both his history and military tactics. -Tony!
