Harry Potter / Ron Weasley: The Dream Team

Support Harry as the Minister of Magic!



Why should Harry be Minister? Oh, there are numerous reasons!

1. Um, he did something in the last book.
I can't really remember . . . I think something related to defeating the darkest wizard of all time. Hm, not sure.

2. He has proven himself to be a strong supporter for equality.
He set a house elf free and buried him like he would do for any other wizard. He doesn't care about who one is born to but rather who one becomes. We need an unprejudiced Minister!

3. He's ideal for the leadership position.
Dumbledore himself admitted that Harry is perfect for the leadership role because he does not seek power. He does well in it but he's never going to be a power-hungry tyrant.

4. Harry has compassion.
He accepted people with open arms, people that most would look down upon. He accepted Remus, Neville and Luna, the outcasts of society.

5. Forgiveness is a beautiful virtue, and that is something that Harry obviously has.
He let go of his grudges against Snape and acknowledged that Snape did some good for the Wizarding World. Harry also forgave Dumbledore for all that he did to him.

6. Sacrifices are necessary in order to accomplish things, and Harry is aware of that.
He let Voldemort kill him because he thought that his death would be the only way to help Voldemort be defeated. Harry even yells at Aberforth in DH saying that sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the greater good. Harry already demonstrated that in his adolescence, of course he has that quality as an adult!

7. And, honestly, who better to be Minister than the Boy Who Lived?

I dunno. :\ I don't see Harry being very interested in the position....

No wai. He's not equipped to stamp out Nargles and Wrackspurts, like Luna (t3h bestest nominee) is.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

Yet he's proven himself to be a great leader by the way he handled Dumbledore's Army!

AND Dumbledore agrees too! *grabs copy of DH*

"It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well." ~ Albus Dumbledore

C'mon, someone has to agree that Harry's the best one for the job!

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

Obviously he's good. But will he want that power?

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

He doesn't care about the power, but about the desire to do good for the Wizarding World.

*waits impatiently for other supporters to arrive*

Poor Harry. How come no one is joining?!?!?!

Harry can totally beat them any day. But he was focused on things that were . . . you know . . . REAL.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

I support the nomination as I think he's the best qualified, but I don't see him wanting the position. If he was voted in, do you think he'd back out?

YAAAAAAAAAAY!!

Of course Harry wouldn't. If he's offered the job he'd preform to the best of his capabilities.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

Anum, I agree Harry will make a good Minister, after SNAPE, though.

Iggy, you did not support SNAPE

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

I'm sorry! I would, but I'm committed to supporting Luna. I don't know if Severus up for all that publicity and socializing, is all.

If he does better than Luna in the long-run, though, I'll be throwing my lot in with him.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

I think my favorite character, Ron Weasley, would support his best friend running for Minister. I asked him in the appropriate thread and am now waiting his response.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

I vote for Harry! I would've created a campaign for James, but somehow I think he's happier sitting back and relaxing with Lily in the afterlife. And anyway, he'd definitely be happy I'm voting for his son, right?

Well, he's only second behind Sirius at the moment and getting more attention than Arthur.

I have mixed feelings about this. Of course I think Harry would be great in the role. Indeed, out of all my favourite characters, I consider him the most suited for the job, Sirius and Professor Snape both being wildly unsuitable in their different ways. And while I adore Luna, and think she'd bring something very special to the role , I'm not sure she'd want the job.

I am not entirely sure Harry would want it either.

Let me ponder a little more.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

Hmmmm... I am pondering this one, too.

I agree: who would be better for this job than Harry?

Hermione would be another suitable candidate, and one who might actually be persuaded to take the job.

Ultimately, though.... I am not sure wehther I can resist the pure fun to campaign for Sirius.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

I support the nomination. We know how he argues about the ways the Ministry works and doesn't like it sometimes. So why not make sure it runs well by being the one who runs it and the wizarding world!

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

Yay for Snivelly and Fury! *adds to the list*

Pearl and Klio. *hands piece of chocolate* Do you want to join?

But to answer the questions, yes I think Harry would do the job. He wasn't keen on being the leader for the D.A., right? But when Hermione knocked some sense in to him and he tried it out, he did a wonderful job. Harry, like Dumbledore said, didn't seek out power, but he handled it well nonetheless. I think Harry would take the job if someone helped him realize that he'd be good in that position.

I changed the first post of this thread. Now can any of you be hesitant?

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

I SUPPORT HARRY POTTER

I agree that Harry would be the best man for the job, even if he doesn't think so yet! He's got the skills, the diplomacy, the public appeal, and the connections.

Re: Harry Potter for Minister of Magic!

How can people not support Harry? He's not the most popular character (everyone knows him, but he's not everyone's favorite), but he is one of the most fair, most caring people in the wizarding world. He puts others lives in front of his own. He saved the wizarding world from one of the most evil wizards in history. He's great at Defensive magic and also great at teaching it to others. He's the head of the Auror Department and has been the leader of Dumbledore's Army, so he's got experience as a leader. I'm sure he'll put Hermione Granger in a position to help him when he needs to use her brains (as I'm sure she'll volunteer her brains without him asking).

Exactly. He may not be the most popular, but he's the best qualified. He's the Head of the Auror department! How can someone argue against Harry? He has a strong sense of what's right and what's wrong. He yelled at Scrimgeour for not doing a good job as Minister. Even as a barely legal wizard he had more sense than the Minister.
