Who wants to be the President? (Interviews will occur in Washington THIS weekend: March 13 - 14.)

American Candidate will provide a forum for new and diverse ideas and a path to national prominence for people with the passion and talent to make a difference. Contestants will create their own platforms, organize their own campaigns, recruit key staff members, and garner the support of potential voters. By introducing a diverse group of potential leaders, each championing a different set of core issues and policy proposals, the show will provoke discussion and debate about what our nation is really looking for in a president. And by providing a forum for grassroots campaigns throughout the country, American Candidate will involve more people in the political process.

We are looking for:
* People who have a passion for creating change
* Leaders
* Diversity

The requirements and more information can be found at http://www.AmericanCandidate.com.
American Candidate is created and executive produced by R.J. Cutler, who produced the Oscar-nominated documentary The War Room, produced and directed the Emmy-nominated documentary A Perfect Candidate, and created, executive produced and directed the Emmy-winning television series, American High. Jay Roach (Meet the Parents, Austin Powers) and Tom Lassally are also executive producers. American Candidate will air on Showtime starting in the summer of 2004.

I think I might actually watch this show. The producers have a tough decision between going for legitimacy and craziness.

I think the fact that they have opened up the process to those ineligible to be President indicates that they may be going for craziness.
