Which Presidential Candidate or Celebrity Would You Want Next Door?

The FHA program involves mortgages and insurance, and it surely involves politics because it’s a government program.

So, which of the presidential candidate or celebrity would you want next door?

ERA — the big real estate network with some 3,000 offices nationwide — surveyed 1,002 people age 50 and above and here’s what they found:

“When polled about the U.S. Presidential candidate they would most like to live next door to, the results provided some insights into the wide open U.S. Presidential race. At 21 percent, Democratic contender U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton led the pack. Coming in at a relatively close second was Republican candidate Fred Thompson (13 percent), closely followed by Democratic hopefuls John Edwards and U.S. Senator Barak Obama (12 percent). Trailing in this poll were former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (10 percent), Senator John McCain (8 percent) and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (6 percent).”

“The celebrity set,” says ERA, “fared better as potential neighbors. Champion golfer Tiger Woods is the celebrity that boomers and seniors think would make the best neighbor (24 percent). Perhaps preferring not to be awakened by the cries of Woods? new daughter, others selected TV talk show hosts Regis Philbin and Ellen DeGeneres (15 and 14 percent, respectively), followed by actress Teri Hatcher of “Desperate Housewives” (8 percent).”

Me? If I had a presidential candidate next door I would move. Too much hassle with security, TV and helicopters landing on the front lawn.
