What are your hopes for the possible You Are President game?

If you couldn't tell from the title, what are your hopes for the possible game where you are the president?
I for one am very much hoping for a completely interactive game with little time in between elections being too simulated even if you don't win the presidency yourself.  Let’s say that I choose to play as a third party, I’ll go with the Green Party, and play through the entire election cycle, primaries and the general election, and I get to about 3-4%.I'd love the option to wait/play the 4 years and run again, with a larger base for the second attempt at the Presidency. (And for shits and giggles, if I get the 5% maybe I would get the federal funding?). If the game is integrated with President Infinity AND Congress Infinity (which I don’t know if it is planned, though it would be an interesting concept that I definitely would enjoy), I hope I could still take the Green Party through the elections in the mean time and run for different positions in Congress until the next general election.

If it does end up fully integrated with CI, I wonder if you would have a personal character you are keeping afloat, or could you be invested in the party as a whole. I’m weirdly fixed on this I’ll admit, but I’d love to take the smaller parties (Green, Constitution, Libertarian, etc) and play them throughout various election cycles growing larger slowly, getting seats in Congress and whatnot, and then eventually President. I think that the possibilities are endless with this game concept, and I'm curious to what other people hope the game will be!

What do you mean by full control over the military? 

Also, I'd love the ability to be able to switch parties if the game can truly go on 20+ years. Although I feel that the longer the time frame the game allows, the harder it is to make real candidates able to be played against. Do you think that the game would have to have randomly generated candidates if it last for so long?

How about making it an option before the game starts. It would be something like "Random Politicians" or "Historical Politicians". If a 3rd party lasts longer or does better than in history, it could randomly generate as a last resort.
