Having received your many nominations for Secretary of Wellness, I now have some sense of just how difficult the job of president must be. With so many well qualified candidates, the choice is next to impossible. Nonetheless, the overwhelming favorite is clear. Corner readers want Richard Simmons to be the first Secretary of Wellness. Oprah and Dr. Phil are runners up, as is Arnold, in the event that president Kerry wishes to make a bipartisan gesture. There are many honorable mentions. Among politicians, president Clinton, Howard Dean, Ted Kennedy and Dennis Kucinich received a couple of votes apiece (Kucinich mentioned because of his disappointed hopes in a Department of Peace). Mayor Bloomberg got a vote, but so did Mayor McCheese. Stuart Smalley, Shirley McLaine, and Deepak Chopra have fans. But my favorite suggestion came from Jed Babbin, who put forward the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, noting that in his case, whether he was dead or alive was irrelevant.
