Sachs for President?

In my Inbox this morning:

Today the Sachs for President Draft Committee formally issued a call for Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs of Columbia University to run for president of the United States of America…

Victoria Zyp, a member of the board of directors of the Draft Committee, said…"We are confident that as more Americans learn about Professor Sachs’  work and qualifications, they are going to agree that he should be our next president.  People are tired of politics as usual, and Professor Sachs is the kind of brilliant and dedicated individual that could put America back on a track," stated campaign volunteer Reema Hijazi….

The Sachs for President Draft Committee is a registered not-for-profit corporation dedicated to drafting Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs to run for President in 2008.  The organization maintains no affiliation with Professor Sachs, nor is it aligned with any political party or organization.  More information… at www.sachsforpresident.org.

We could will do a lot worse.
