Star Wars Elections!
Star Wars Elections!
I'm not sure you're aware but we have a pretty big event happening on Tuesday this week. Finally, all of the campaigning will be over and we will find out who our next president will be for the next four years. This made me think, who in the Star Wars universe would create the best campaign for President?
Jabba the Hut
Make Tatooine Great Again
Jabba would run his campaign solely for himself. He is used to having the world revolve around him and having those less than him serve him in undignified ways. Jabba built himself a large empire and is one of the most notorious mobsters in Galaxy. His campaign would revolve around limiting galactic tariffs so imports and exports would increase, he would focus on legalizing Spice, and finally he would want to increase spending on Dreadnoughts, star destroyers, and individual fighters such as TIE and X-Wings.
Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin
I’m with Him
Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin is cold, calculating, and only focused on moving his own agenda forward. He has always been keyed in on furthering his career. He makes moves that might negatively affect others but as long as he comes out ahead he will do them. His campaign would focus on building a second Star Killer Base or another Death Star, tighten the reigns on migration between planets, and regulation on everything. Oh and if you don't agree he will blow up your planet… Too soon?
Now to the actual best candidates!
Princess/General Leia Organa Solo
Fight the Fight
Princess Leia would be a great candidate for president. She has a lifetime of political experience, served as a senator, is a war hero, follows her guts. Ok, she may be a tad emotional, but she is great at making compromises and bridging gaps between people. She is the obvious choice and she doesn't have any family skeletons in her closet...
It's a trap!
Admiral Ackbar is a Rebellion war hero. He has commanded the Rebellion and New Republic fleet. In a world where a few tense words can cause a war, we need someone who knows the horrors of war and uses it only as a last resort.
There is one final candidate:
Whoo Sa? Me Sa?
I mean he is a Sith Lord and no one knew it...
There are still several potential candidates out there. Who do you think would be the best candidate for the presidency?
