Emergency Council of Elders

I've been thinking - what this country desperately needs is a Council of Elders that has the power to intervene in our political processes ONLY IN CASES OF EXTREME EMERGENCY in order to save us from ourselves. I need help filling the positions though.

  3. Whoopi Goldberg
    She'll tell it like it is AND lighten the mood.

    He always calls politicians out on the BS, and does it with such relish and humor.
