I once knew a country boy who sometimes said, "The higher that you get up on limb the more people that can take a shot at you." The office of the POTUS represents an epitome of the truth in that casual comment. Yet, some have pursued the office relentlessly.Answers to this question:
Many things are special about American presidency that make it highly desirous.The prestige associated with the position of American president motivates the desire in someone in being interested in the position.Without missing words,the position is unique in that American president remains the most powerful,most respected and most referred person in the world.
My apologies that I forgot that there is an international audience to these questions when I used an American colloquialism to expand on my question.
While I do not disagree at all with your answer I submit that in addition to being the most powerful, most respected and most referred person in the world the president is also, to others, one of the most despised and hated persons in the world. Therefore why would a person seek an office cradled between these two extremes?

I know that I sure wouldn't want all that responsibility and can't imagine why anyone does. I don't think I'll ever get inside the head of such a person, so sorry, no answer for your question from me. :)
