Hermione Granger / Neville Longbottom for Minister for Magic

I hereby nominate Neville Longbottom as Minister for Magic.

This may seem a strange choice for many, but let me explain:

He lives above the Leaky Cauldron, a central hub for the Magical community, thus giving him easy access to the community, not to mention that his wife is the bartender, and can thus pick up some handy tidbits of information for him.

Neville is, as we know, a member of Dumbledore's Army, and, by his association with this army, has proven himself to be a competent fighter, and a loyal friend. This means that, in times of magical crisis/crisises, you, the paying witches, wizards and other members of the magical community, can be sure that Neville will never give up, will never take a bribe, and will never forsake the things he holds dear.

Also note that Neville has stood up to Harry Potter. Harry Potter - The Boy Who Lived. The Chosen One. The Vanquisher of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. The-One-With-Too-Many-Nicknames-And-Titles-To-Count. This is one of those "Things One Does Not Do". And Neville Longbottom did it.

Re: Neville Longbottom for Minister for Magic

Why has no one voted for Neville? >.> Why can't I have three votes? Neville, Luna, and Severus are my own personal trio, and I think that each of them would make fantastic Ministers!

Re: Neville Longbottom for Minister for Magic

Is it possible to make him a VP to Snape?

Hermione Granger for Minister!

Well, obviously! I cannot believe I had to wait so long for someone to nominate the OBVIOUS choice - and that nobody did! I cannot believe how underappreciated Hermione is.

So I could not tolerate this injustice any longer, even though I probably won't be able to participate in the campaigning. I may not have time to campaign, but if this deserving woman gets 10 votes, I hope among them there will be people worthy and creative enough to develop and promote her campaign well enough without me.

Here's my opening speech from another thread:

Hermione is made for this job. She's not officious like others have been. She's got imagination, flair and resolution. She has a mind of her own and an acute sense of justice - and something very important, which I think makes her superior to any of the others: she has an excellent understanding of when rules should be followed and when they can be sacrificed. She can tell the important from the unimportnant. She can act quickly and make hard decisions under pressure. She doesn't lose her had or falter in crtitical moments. She is just perfect for the post. Objectively. Not because of fan love or devotion. Because she is the best woman for the job and because the wizarding world will gain loads under her rule.

Vote Hermione!

If there are any members who haven't signed up for the other characters yet...

Re: Hermione Granger for Minister!

Great speech!

You have persuaded me, Yoana.

I love Harry dearly, and was very tempted to vote for him but what held me back was the underlying sneaky feeling that, actually, he would have reservations about such a high-profile job for very good reasons.

I think Hermione would cope with the pressure better. Harry's had enough of the Wizarding World's fatuous expectations of him, IMO. I think he'd rather be chasing Dark Wizards.

And of course Snape is the awesome but, in all honesty, much as I love our Snarkmaster, I don't think he would be terribly suitable for the job.

Hermione is the woman.

I, too, won't have any time for campaigning if Hermione gets her 10 required voters but I did want to at least register my support for the only other female character who has been nominated. It's a bit shocking that Hermione and Luna are the only two female nominees!

I vote Hermione Granger for Minister for Magic

Re: Hermione Granger for Minister!

Even though I support Severus (on principle ), I'd be glad if Hermione wins! Out of all the candidates she's the most reasonable choice. Actually she's the only potential Minister with whom I cannot find any fault. She's not only brave and compassionate, like Harry, she's also careful, responsible and prefers to analyze a situation instead of just thoughtlessly rushing into action.

Re: Hermione Granger for Minister!

Still thinking!

Rational thought makes this an obvious choice.... but I am still tempted by the sheer fun of campaigning for Sirius.

I'll see whether my rational judgement wins.

Re: Hermione Granger for Minister!

Hermione would be a brilliant Minister. She has been working in the Ministry for years and is used to dealing with new issues all the time. She has the brains for it, that's for sure.

ETA: I see that my words have once again been taken the wrong way. I never said to vote for Hermione.

Harry rocks!

Well, we knew that.

Yoana, this is the nomination that makes the most sense to me.

Klio, it would be great if you voted for Hermione, but I can really understand why you feel drawn to voting for Sirius. He'd be barking mad in the role (excuse terrible pun ) but what a laugh.

Re: Neville Longbottom for Minister for Magic

I will cast my vote for Neville. I'm sure since becoming a professor he's had to deal with all sorts of bureaucracy that would come in handy when working for the ministry. Plus all his buddies are working there, so he has support on the inside as well.

Go Neville!

Re: Hermione Granger for Minister!

I don't like Hermione personally, but I have no doubt she would make a fantastic minister. In fact, I think she would be the best person for the job out of those nominated, with the possible exception of Luna. Unfortunately, unlike Klio, the irrational portion of my brain occupies about 87%, so I'm with Sirius. Best of luck, though.

Re: Hermione Granger for Minister!

Oooh! Finally! Hermione would definitely be my choice if this were a serious election. She's smart, opinionated, and works hard. Good luck!
