What would you ask the President of the United States?

What would you ask the President of the united States, If given the opportunity

This may be a question of a life time for the sophomore
college student, he was quite bold and direct… too bad
the President did not reply with the same tenacity, even
though he claims he and his family are not that far away
from those years when they did not know what bill was
going to be paid on time, including their student loans…

Here is the question –

a young man who identified himself as a college sophomore
— and wisely didn’t provide his name
— complimented the president on his efforts to stimulate
the economy. He then asked Obama whether he has considered
“legalizing prostitution, gambling, drugs and nonviolent crime”
as a way to further boost economic growth.

President Obama’s reply-

“I appreciate the boldness of your question, but that would not be my strategy,” the president said, to laughter. In college, he said, “what you are supposed to do is to question conventional wisdom.  So you’re doing what you’re supposed to do.”

[btw-never really answered this question]
I guess He is fitting in to “Washington-Politics as usual”

IMHO –

I guess he was far enough removed from that time in his life,
that he lost one of the lessons he learned in college “to question
conventional wisdom…” Finn Perkins
