What Politician Would You Like as a Neighbor?

Former Republican vice presidential candidate (and new grandma) Sarah Palin recently won a poll on the most desirable celebrity neighbors with 14 percent, closely followed by Oprah Winfrey.

The 2008 campaign gave us an up close look at the lives of Palin, John McCain, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, but I suspect being neighbors with Condoleezza Rice, Eliot Spitzer or Rod R. Blagojevich would be pretty entertaining as well. What politician do you wish you could borrow eggs and sugar from?

@hypnoticmix, well Rep. Solis has sent us newsletters, but they're just addressed to Resident instead of our names so I'm not sure that they're because of us being on her mailing list or anything. :o

Evangelicals believe themselves to be "true" Christians, and the majority of them seem EXTREMELY judgmental :shrug:

ECU, I am from the south,a christian, and i would pick Palin as a neighbor, wicked teenage daughter and all. it doesnt make any sense that a true christian would be that judgemental.

Did they ask anyone from the South for this poll?! I highly doubt that here in the Bible belt they would have picked someone with a unwed teenage mother in the family unless they just wanted another neighbor to gossip about!

Post-Senate-Elect and Pre-President-Elect one of my best friends was actually next door neighbors with Obama in DC. From what I hear it was great...until he needed secret service detailing...then, not so much.

Jude's right - Joe would be fun. But Karlotta's right too - the guys with guns thing gets old. I once delivered a newspaper bill to a vice-president elect's house and was greeted on the porch by two guys in suits & sunglasses with guns at their sides. I very nearly peed myself.

The Bidens. You know that guy would be very entertaining after a few beers.

Yeah, I wonder how Cheney would be as a neighbor. He seems grumpy, but in an amiable way like a grumpy grandfather. I know I'd like talking to him, I'm just not sure he'd like talking to me:)

I would say Pres Bush, We could go hunting (not with cheney) eat good texas food, he seems like a fun guy.

Don't you hate that pinkzvm. I write representatives all the time local, state and federal and the one who's office has persistently not replied to me in almost five years now is U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee representing Oakland Ca. and surrounding area. I'm like what is this sista doing in five years that she can't get back to me. Everyone else has written back and I always get a response from Sen. Feinsteins staff on every letter even before I became close friends with her assistant in San Francisco.

Congressman David Dreier. When we wrote to our representatives in Congress about something, we wrote to two possible representatives since we weren't sure whose congressional district we were in. Only Rep. Dreier and his staff personally replied, even though it turned out he wasn't the one who was our actual representative. Such a nice guy! The other representative? Well, Obama has picked her to be the new Labor secretary!

It'd be fun to see the crazy parades outside the Palin's house, but as far as people I actually like, I think the Clintons, but, can I choose a mayor or something instead? I like Portland's new mayor, I could live next door to him!

Just be sure to keep one eye on the sky, UnD. Sarah will have said flying ova shot down before they even get near that fence. Then again, you will have created the perfect omelette storm. Recycling coupled with a reason to invite the Clintons over for brunch? A win-win. ;)

I don't think I'd borrow eggs from the Clintons, but I'd be willing to throw a couple hundred dozen over the fence to their house... ;)

Some how I do not see anyone going over to the Clinton's to borrow eggs. I doubt you would be able to come up with someone more normal or regular the the Palin family throughout middle America. :fogey:

The Palins are the obvious choice for mainstream Americans. I'd personally like to live next to Senator Jim Inhofe of OK or Rep. Thad McOtter from Michigan. They are good guys and real conservatives.

The Obamas or Clintons. To me, they just seem like very interesting people and seem fairly nice. If Palin was my neighbor, I would move in a heartbeat. No hunting near my yard. :P

My mom used to live across the street from Sarkozy. There were always big-ass cops outside on the street - which was 1. scary, because it made us feel like the building was always about to blow up; 2. safe, because no robber with a brain would ever dare break into that apartment building! and 3. nice, because they'd help her carry her groceries. But it's also good that they're gone. The "police state" feel was a tad overwhelming!

I picked the Obama's so that my daughter could play with the girls.

Ewwwww - who did they poll to come up with Sarah Palin?!?! I want normal, regular people as my neighbours. There is enough drama in the world that I don't want it in my backyard!

In all practical sense, none of them. It'd be fun to have the Obamas as neighbors in fantasyland, though. Politicians are treated like celebrities, and if I was their neighbor, I'd just have this to say: "if I so much as find ONE paparazzo/news reporter hiding out in my bushes...I *will* be invoking castle law. No questions asked." ;)

I pick John McCain, only because I'm a native Arizonan and I love it here (unlike almost everyone else I encounter, oddly enough).
