Tim Tebow for President: 5 Reasons the Holy Quarterback Has My Vote!

Tim TebowI have to admit, when I first heard that New York Jets player Tim Tebow may consider running for office someday, my immediate thought was that this was some sort of joke. I mean, being a quarterback and handling political matters are two totally different things, but it sounds like standing behind a podium in front of crowds doesn't bother Tebow one bit.

In an interview with Rich Cimini from ESPN New York, Tim made the following statement about his potential future in politics:

Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I'd love to do. I haven't ruled out anything like that. It won't be anytime soon in my future, but it'll be something I'll at least look at and consider one day.


And while I'm guessing he's talking about running for mayor or another smaller-scale position -- doesn't "Tim Tebow for President" have kind of a nice ring to it? For whatever reason, I'm lovin' the idea of seeing him hit the campaign trail down the road -- and he'd definitely secure my vote.

Hey -- don't laugh. There are plenty of great reasons why Tim Tebow deserves a vote for President, or any other political office for that matter.

  1. He looks the part. Presidents aren't always easy on the eyes, but I could get used to seeing Tim Tebow interrupt my favorite reality TV shows to deliver the State of the Union Address.
  2. His closet is skeleton-free. Whoa -- a politician who hasn't been involved in some sort of super-shady scandal? Where and when do I vote?
  3. He knows how to compete -- and win. And something tells me Tebow wouldn't rely on hateful smear-tactics in order to take out his opponent.
  4. He actually has a conscience. Tim has an incredibly strong belief system and a set of values he'll never waiver from. He'll speak from the heart instead of simply telling the people what they want to hear to get elected.
  5. His First Lady will be a total knockout. If Tim makes it all the way to the White House, you know he's going to have a serious beauty on his arm. Maybe with Tim as the leader of the free world, we'll finally be able to look to our own First Lady for style guidance rather than drooling over Kate Middleton.

Will you vote for Tim Tebow if he ever runs for office?
