Give Aras race X Factor revamp

Seeing as the Irish presidential election has turned into another branch of showbiz, next time can we have a viewers' telephone vote line?

We could have an expert panel giving them the once over. Miriam O'Callaghan would make a perfect Cheryl Cole, Pat Kenny could be Simon Cowell and Joe Duffy could be Louis Walsh.

That sure would put a bit of oomph into proceedings. One could be voted off every week - and given a job in the Irish Senate as a consolation prize.

The winner would be president for a year only and then put on next year's panel as a guest.

Now that really would put this Mickey Mouse appointment into perspective.
