The US hunting and gun lobby is quite powerful. The US wish and wildlife foundation says (http://wsfrprograms.fws.gov/Subpages/Na ... _trend.htm) 12.5 million people hunted (in real life) in the US in 2006. The number of WOW players has reached 11 million globally, over half of them US based.

Here's my idea for a shared topic: How would our lives change if a lobby representing the interests of US WOW players had as much clout per capita as the hunting (and long gun) lobby?

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/200 ... 7034_x.htm

Would President Obama have photo-ops with him rolling a paladin? Raiding Naxx? Would politicians have to try to balance their message so they attract people who are partial to both horde and alliance?

edit: here's my contribution: http://outdps.com/2009/07/10/shared-top ... lobbyists/

I like this idea. I would love to see Obama with a "For the Horde" shirt or something like that. Any president who did that would become my favorite president ever, lol. :mrgreen:

I'll have to do a post on this on my blog too.
