We'd Totally Vote for This Toddler Candidate for President

If you haven't made up your mind on who to support in the 2016 election, please consider 1-year-old Amalah.

Just when you thought the field of potential candidates for president had been narrowed down significantly, a new White House hopeful has thrown her baby bonnet in the ring: 1-year-old Amalah.

Want to know what this adorable toddler stands for? What her vision is for America, and more importantly, nap time? Well her father, who posts as La Guardia Cross on YouTube, has scored a two-part interview with the cute candidate to try to find out.

"Just when you thought the U.S. presidential campaigns couldn't get any more juvenile," is the caption on the hilarious Part One of the interview series.

In the interview, Cross isn't letting would-be pewee president Amalah off easy just because she's his daughter, or because she's, you know, still in diapers. "What are you going to do to bridge that gap and bring everyone together?" he demands of the adorable little girl, who is holding court in her high chair.

The funniest aspect of this video is how Cross interprets his baby's babbling into intelligible answers. Like when she mumbles something incoherent and he translates it to her announcing she's a "juggernaut."

At the end of the interview, the dad and daughter duo have a "cry-off" to see who can appear more sympathetic toward the plight of senior Americans. Sorry, but I think Amalah wins!

Listen, despite this candidate's late entry into the race, and her relative lack of experience, she definitely has my vote when it comes to cuteness! And quite frankly, I'd rather watch her than the barrage of boring debates among the "real" candidates.
