Dream Job

The position of president isn't the highest-paying job in the country, but it's probably the most stressful.  Ever notice how much presidents, particularly two-term presidents, age while they're in office?  Even jaunts to Camp David are often working vacations, and, just like what we do at CNN, the president's always needed when there's breaking news.

I love what I do, but as a kid, I never thought I'd be a news anchor.  I remember saying I wanted to be a pilot (something I'd still like to be in my spare time), a fireman, a dentist, and, at one point, a milkman (don't ask).  But Thursday's report on the president's salary and the opportunities a commander-in-chief has after leaving office made me want to do a blog on dream jobs.  What's yours?  And what was it when you were a kid?
