Humans of Coronado – Who’s on Your “Dream Team” for President and Vice President?

Humans of Coronado is a photo series where we “bump” into residents and visitors around the “island,” completely unplanned and unfiltered.  It was inspired by Humans of New York. Next time you are out and about around town, you may just find yourself part of the next HOC series!

This segment of Humans of Coronado concerns the upcoming Presidential election. Whether it’s in a public forum or behind closed doors, many people have expressed an overall dissatisfaction with the candidates who are vying for our nation’s highest office. We’ve heard people say, “I wish [so-and-so] was running.”  There have even been humorous postings on social media about dynamic duos who should run in 2016 such as entertainers Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.

If you had the opportunity to pick anyone (living, of course) who would represent the United States as our 45th President, and you could select his or her Vice President as well, who would you pick?  Who’s your Dream Team?

Responses were varied, but it was certainly worth noting that none of the respondents selected any of the current candidates as members of their dream team.  Our Humans of Coronado’s choices were definitely interesting and thought-provoking, and include the following pairings:

  1. Darrell Issa and Kristen Gillibrand
  2. Phil Jackson and Colin Powell
  3. Joe Biden and Jon Stewart
  4. John McCain and Condoleezza Rice
  5. Joe Biden and Tina Fey
  6. Pope Francis and Peggy Noonan
