Ancillary Justice by Anne Leckie
Candidate: Anaander Mianaai
Political experience: Judicial, political, military, and religious head of the Imperial Raach. Has served in this capacity for centuries.
Pros: As a single consciousness distributed across thousands of cloned bodies, she could significantly reduce the size of the Washington bureaucracy all on her own. Centuries of constant expansionist warfare means she would probably have an active foreign policy.
Cons: Doesn’t believe that people are humans until they have been conquered and assimilated by her which, among other things, is probably going to tick off the British. Also, she may be involved in a schizophrenic civil war with herself, and the last thing we need is to elect a second Congress as President.
Campaign Slogan: “Prosperity Through Eternal Genocidal Conquest.”
