How to pick a president or a lawyer

Scott Adams makes a compelling case for why Bill Gates would be a good president (of the United States). If the election were held tomorrow, I’d vote for Mr. Gates without a moment’s further thought. The bonus nugget in Adams’ post was how to pick an attorney:

“I’ve always felt that you should pick a president the same way you’d pick an attorney to help you out of a dangerous legal problem. Do you want the attorney who dresses nicely and belongs to your church? Or do you want the attorney who can rip out your opponent’s heart and put it on the hibachi before he dies? Maybe it’s just me, but I want an attorney who is part demon.”

Of course. Everyone rags on lawyers but when they get in a jam, they want a gun-slinger.
