Forget Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, you have just been elected the US president. But would you do? To contribute to this assignment hit the green button below.

I'd make a number of quasi-legal executive orders that benefit the mega-corporations that helped me get in office.

I'd take full advantage of the pomp and privileges of the office while trying to make few, if any real decisions.

I'd be divisive and obstinate, knowing that no matter what I did, half the country would love it and call me "brave" and "a true leader" while the other half called me "cocky" and "dangerous".

As real problems arose, I'd lay the rhetoric on thick and hope for some celebrity gossip to steal the headlines before I was forced to do anything.

When I lost my re-election, I'd blame my opponent's dirty politics, then start cashing those fat, life-time pension checks.
