I am fairly young, but every U.S. president that I have remembered has been married.  Do you have to be married?

EZ Einstein, every president that I have been alive for has been married, obviously I know their must have been at least 1 that was not in the history of U.S. presidents, but I thought it was a good question to ask, obviously ur a smart guy, and know everything.

I'd be shocked if we would elect a single person for President.  How are they going to convince the masses that they understand family values and all that?  It just wouldn't look right if it was just some dude or woman and their dog getting on Air Force or Marine One.  And how would this go over:  "President so and so left the White House for Camp David today so he could whack off in private and have his buddies over to drink beer and watch the game on Sunday."

Just not gonna happen IMO.

Being married with children is a major selling point for any politician. It shows that you're "settled", and can relate to most voters, a majority of which are married.

Clooney would be a good idea. "Here's President Clooney, along with the First girl, Italian supermodel........."
