Last night, in a fanfare-filled press conference, Apple Inc. announced that it will run for president of the United States in 2012. The announcement marks the first time that a corporation will vie for the highest office in the country.
Steve Jobs, CEO of the hip technology company, made the announcement. “At Apple, we’re innovators,” he said. “With creativity and craftsmanship, we’ll be able to reinvent the government.”
On January 3, 2012, the company will turn 35 years old, making it legally eligible for the presidency. It is still unclear whether it will run as a Republicrat or a Democan.
