What if the role of president was divided into 6 people, and they had to come to a consensus? How would you decide 6 different positions, as opposed to one? How would the qualities you look for change?

    May 31 2011: firstly, each person would have to be elected. more elections will not appear to anyone.

    secondly, you need a strong president. one who can act on a whim and you entrust to make vital, fast decisions on our behalf. with more than 1 president, nothing would get done. too much time talking and disagreeing instead of tackling the major issues we would need them to.

    thirdly, it is too complicated. the president has to get approval from congress and the US senate in the US i think already! if there was debates before debates - it would be too complicated and again, nothing would get done.
