I'm actually rather happy with the job I have now. Would love a little bit more money (I think I'm worth it ) but I control my own schedule, I do something I enjoy, no two days are exactly the same and I get to travel fairly frequently -- but whithout the regularity of an airline pilot (which I think would kill me).
The power of a political position (Sen., President, etc) would be nice -- and it would be nice if some of the things that were wrong with this country finally got fixed -- but I don't like people or public attention enough.
I honestly can't think of 10 other things I'd rather be doing at the moment.

While I wouldn't mind making A-Rod type money, think more like the next Scott Fletcher (if anyone else remembers the Rangers from the late 1980s) Seriously, that's what I wanted to do since I was about 5. Ok, so sometimes I wanted to play third like Steve Buechele and I may be better suited to play second like Jeff Kunkel, but still...
