VAIL VALLEY, Colorado “-When it comes to this year’s presidential candidates, some in the Vail Valley really like Barack Obama. Some really like John McCain. A small percentage prefer alternatives Ralph Nader and Bob Barr.

But if locals were give the chance to pick their ideal candidate for president ” in their own perfect world, at least ” none of those men would fit the bill.

For fun, supposing this were a perfect world, Vail Valley residents gave their pick for the next president.

Late night TV has gotten the best of Amanda Moody. She said her choice for the next president would be The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart. The rational veep choice, she said, would be the man whose show follows Stewart’s: Stephen Colbert of “The Colbert Report.”

“I don’t know if they would do a very good job, but they would have a lot to talk about,” she said. “They might do a good job figuring out who to put in important positions.”
