Obama because I would want to be able to make a difference in this country and in the world, not that he is not doing a good job I actually think unlike most people that president Obama is trying to fix this nation and I admire him for that. I know only being president for a day would not do much but it is better than wanting to be an actor or a singer for a day because I would rather be making a difference out their in the world than living it up, it may stop me from having fun but I will be helping the rest of the world live better and happy.

If I could choose to be someone famous for a day, I would choose to be Sophia Bush. Sophia Bush is a well known actress but what I admire the most about her is that she is a passionate philanthropist. Environmental issues are a big deal to her as they are to me. People don’t see what damage we are committing to the world. Sophia Bush is a great activist and focuses on important worldwide issues. She’s an inspiring individual; therefore, if I received the chance to become anyone famous, I would choose to be Sophia Bush.

If I had to be anyone that is famous I would be Michael Jackson, he made music into a never endless noise and he was and always will be the king of pop.

And he made a difference to the world, he is wonderful and a genius, someone I love to be.

If I were to pick a popular person to be, Barrack Obama would be my first choice. He has control of EVERYTHING. Laws, Politics, Gas Prices etc.... Not only do I have power, I also have respect. I would get people to vote for me for next year’s term. I could take a walk in the park, and people all around me would either be begging for my autograph or taking pictures of me, because no one gets to mess with the president.

If I had a chance to be someone famous for a day it would be Jessie James a famous outlaw from the western era of the United States. The reason why I’ll be such a person is because Jessie James was a renown outlaw for his doings I’ll be very interested to see what the American public and the justice system will do to see a man of his status roaming the streets of the United States again. Also a bigger reason is Jessie James was a bank robber and acquired a bunch of money and treasures and right before he was arrested he hid most of stash somewhere in his home town. If I was him I’ll most likely remember where I hid it then most likely I’ll go retrieve it from such area.

If I could be anyone famous, I'd be Hayley Williams from the band Paramore. I personally think she's an amazing singer. She's beautiful, she has a great voice, and she has my dream job. I'm not a singer, but I would love to go on tours, travel the world, meet other bands, have loads of fans, everything. One day, I wish to live the dream of being a lead singer in a punk band. It seems really fun and she is the most down to earth girl. I would definitely chose Hayley if I were able to be someone famous.

If I had a choice to be a famous person, it would be Tim Tebow, the reason why I would enjoy being Tim is because no matter what people say about his quarterback skills and accuracy he doesn’t give up, thanks to all of his effort he is leading his team, the Denver Broncos, against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, beating the Pittsburg Steelers in a intense, yet close, overtime game. Not only is he proving he is a good football player, but a great person as well, participating with people, especially children, in need.

If I could be famous for a day; I would be Patrick Carney. If you don’t know who Patrick Carney is he is a very talented drummer for the musical group, The Black Keys. He is one of my few idols. I would want to be him because I am a drummer myself, and I would want to feel the rush of playing in front of huge crowds as a drummer from my favorite band.  I think it would be really fun and exciting.

If I could be famous for a day, I would like to be the main leader of the Mexican cartel. Why? Because it has always driven my attention to know what goes through their minds while giving horrific commands to kill somebody or other unbelievable things.

If I could be famous for a day it would be God. I would love to have the power that he has to help everybody in their problems, no matter how big or how small he is always listening!
