Kermit the Frog announced on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno that he is running for president on the Green Party ticket. He knows that winning the presidency will be hard since he is running a Green Party candidate and although the green party is not one of the major political parties, he feels that they cares the most about frogs.
Kermit stated: "It's not easy being green. I hope that by running with the Green Party I can stand up for the rights of frogs everywhere."
He talked about many of the policies that he wants to implement as president including spending 3 billion dollars in funding for finding a cure for frog cancer, promoting education regarding the history of frogs in America in schools, and giving government grants to artists who are skilled at painting pictures of frogs.
When asked by Leno if he though it would be hard for him to win the presidency because he was a frog, Kermit replied, "No people no more about me than any of the other candidates, and frankly I think they like me more!"
Could a frog win the presidency? Kermit is confident he can. With a simple, down to earth demeanour and a passion for frogs and swamp life, Kermit is confident Americans love him and will want him as president.
