Talk Back: Why would anyone want to run for president?

From CNN's Carol Costello:

Let’s face it, Americans are demanding of their politicians, especially with the economy in such a rut. Voters love to rip candidates to shreds about both political issues and their personal lives, so who would want to subject themselves to the constant scrutiny and indecision?

The public wants politicians to keep their taxes low, but not cut services. Candidates are not conservative enough and not liberal enough. Is there anything a candidate can do right? Not saying that politicians don't deserve some derision, but as a candidate, you can't even be yourself. So, why would someone put themselves through that?
