Alvin Greene: “I Was Born To Be President”

South Carolina’s own Alvin Greene wants America to know he’s ready to serve:

Former South Carolina Democratic Senate candidate Alvin Greene has only the highest hopes for his political future despite his crushing defeat two weeks ago — he thinks he will be the next president.

In an interview outside a Columbia, S.C. courthouse – where he was being tried for allegedly showing pornographic material to a college-aged girl – Greene said he would sue the Columbia Free-Times newspaper if he read an account of the legal proceedings.

Instead Greene suggested the media focus on his presidential potential before claiming to be the “greatest person ever.”

“I’m the next president,” Greene said. “I’ll be 35 … just before November, so I was born to be president. I’m the man. I’m the man. I’m the man. Greene’s the man. I’m the man. I’m the greatest person ever. I was born to be president. I’m the man, I’m the greatest individual ever.”

Honestly, I’m not sure if could be any worse than our last few Presidents.
