The Honorable Harold Stassen

Harold Stassen (April 13, 1907 - March 4, 2001) is mostly known as "That Guy Who Loves To Run For President". A native Minnesotan, Stassen ran for President of the U.S. of A. TEN TIMES between the years 1940 and 2000 (waging his last campaign at the age of 92!). He never won of course - never even won the Republican Nomination - but he did hold more than one legitimate offices nonetheless. He was the Governor of Minnesota, the Director of the U.S. Foreign Operations Administration (under Ike) and the President of the University of Pennsylvania, to name a few. He also served in the Navy during WWII under Adm. Wm. "Bull" Halsey.
So here's to perseverance - and the belief that you can by god do anything you wanna. 
And that its never too late. (once your student loans are mostly paid off)
And that maybe you're not crazy after all, with your cockamamie dreams...
