SUNDAY BRUNCH

Smart Aleck

June 21, 1998

The question June 7: Judging by Tuesday's mediocre turnout at the polls, people are bored with the usual political suspects. Whom would you like to see run for public office and for which office?

*

I would like to see a nonrich, nonarrogant, nonegotistical, honest individual run for office. An individual who is interested in "We the people . . . , " not in "Where will I be tomorrow?"

S.M. Loewy

Westminster

*

Hillary Rodham Clinton for president. This is one smart woman. And Elizabeth Taylor for vice president. Think of it: the cleavage, the dazzling jewelry, the violet eyes staring off into the blank space reserved for this second-highest-ranking office.

Scott Mayers

Venice

*

Don't change anything. The lower the voter turnout, the better. It makes my vote more powerful.

Rick Schilf

Van Nuys

*

Dennis Rodman for secretary of State. He would scare the world into following the U.S.

Nicholas Heath

Rancho Cucamonga

*

I would like to see the Newt run for commissar of Outer Mongolia and be elected--for life.

Walt Hopmans

Santa Barbara

*

President Clinton should run for judge of a beauty pageant such as the Miss America competition. He knows what to look for.
