Hello all you members of Arwen-Undomiel, lovers of Middle Earth and company! Some of us have begun a club, in the appropriate section above, for people of Voting age and up. So if you fit that bill, please come and join in the fun, we have candy..-nods lots and laughs- Anyway, as such, we were interested in how you would vote! If you could pick one of the listed folks as President of M. E. who would you select and why? Post away, but remember more than one word reasons please! (like Aragorn-hot! isn't a reason to vote him president :P ) Thank you for all your input!! :)

I do not know the government of Middle-Earth well, like how many years they serve in office and such ;) but If I were to choose the president I would pick Aragorn.

As the choice states, he is destined to be king which makes him a great ruler already. He is brave and has great speaking skills, he also has many loyal advisors [i.e. Legolas, Gimli]

Boromir has the small issue of being dead, and Aragon always seemed a bit brainless to me, ditto to Arwen, Eoywn & Legolas, they just kinda look good. I'd go for Sauron, he has great leadership qualities :)

I voted for Boromir!!! He is bound to make a good president. After all his speeches are "nice and short". Plus he is such a great warrior and he probably knows how to deal with complex situations like we are having now.

[font=Arial, sans-serif]I said another, I would choose either Sam or Haldir. Sam because he's level headed and he would sincerely care about his people. He's kind, loyal, and caring. Vice president could be Haldir because he's brave and (in the books) loyally serves the people in charge. He's brave and would be good if something ever happened to Sam cause he's already immortal! :-D [/font]

Well so like ... Haldir would be a bodyguard or something? He's immortal, yes, but if he got hurt in battle, it could lead to his death. Loyally serving the people in charge would make him a good guard (what he already is), but definitely not a president, or even a vice.

Nahh, much as I love Haldir, he's still only a guard of Lórien and not suitable to be anything higher, seeing as he didn't have much of a part during his appearance in LotR.

I picked Aragorn because I do not think that anyone could make a better President than him. He's just very brave, loyal and everything else that I'm too stupid to type. He's a good fighter and an extremely good leader ... go Aragorn!!! :wave:

By the way, I think Boromir would look "sharpe" in a suit, giving a speech. And who cares if he is dead already. We can just resurrect him back from the dead.

:p LOLOL good point, good point. We would have a problem if a battle came about wouln't we. Okay I say Sam for president and Pippin for vice
simply because it would be hysterical watching pippin try to run a country :p
