    Would you vote for The Rock?

    He'd suit a clear Democratic need for fresh leadership that is still well-known. That's for sure.

    Wouldn't rule him out.

    But it's way early to ask if he is going to be a viable candidate.

    He's not going to run. It's a PR stunt.

He’s a household name, a man whose crossover success is an inspiration to many young hungry up and comers, whether in wrestling, acting, or other endeavors. This makes him an easy target.

    In an interview with Josh Horowitz of MTV, Johnson admits that he did try steroids in his late teens. “I tried it,” Johnson said. “Me and my buddies tried it back in the day when I was 18 or 19. Didn’t know what we were doing.” It essentially adds up to being nothing more than a young kid experimenting with something that was unknown to him. So how exactly has steroid use affected Johnson’s career? They haven’t in the least."

    Oops! I think the guy in the White House now has serious problems. Drugs or otherwise.

    A lot of people juice...some can handle their "roids" while some can't. People do a lot of things for their careers. It really is no different than a woman getting botox and laser resurfacing to stay viable in the job market or their acting careers. Sometimes your body is your resume.

    The guy is universally beloved. If he runs for office then he gives that up.
    I've only seen him in one movie. He was pretty good, even though the movie sucked. (Escape to Witch Mountain, the remake. The original was better by far and was one of my favorite childhood movies.)

    Central Intelligence is pretty funny. You should stream it this weekend.

    I see. Polls are wrong. That means "everyone" actually shares your beliefs, then?

    He certainly is not an evolved/great actor. But he is a very likable entertainer.

    And has been (relatively) well cast into movie roles well suited for him. (Made him a ton of money as i recall...near the top of the list last year.)
