Canada for President?--if only we could

As Barack Obama campaigns to win a second term, and Republican Mitt Romney fights to stop that, two comedians are trying to convince Americans to choose a real outsider as the next US president. In their satirical book America, But Better, Brian Calvert and Chris Cannon are asking Americans to choose Canada - not a specific Canadian but rather the entire country. Brian Calvert, who plays the Face of Canada in a series of viral YouTube videos, and writer Chris Cannon argue that their homeland already leads the US when it comes to quality of health care and education. The BBC joined them during a campaign stop in New York City where they explained why they think the US has much to learn from its northern neighbour. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-19594334

Canada for President? Why not, they have better health care, education, and never had the housing bubble and subsequent crash we did--they never had to bail out their banks or financial industry. If only we could elect Canada . . .
