    Will this be the first face you see when you walk into your local hardware store? Elliot's Hardware hopes so.

    Many may be familiar with the Wal-Mart greeter; the kind smiling individual standing at the opening of one of those mega-stores, ready to say hello. But DFW residents who know their nuts and bolts also know Elliott's Hardware's greeting force, who're often the perfect sage to ask, "Where can I find a plunger?" as you walk into the store in pants wet up to your ankles.

    Now Elliott's has their sights set on a very specific candidate for adding to their greeting group: Former President George W Bush.

    In a letter posted in the Dallas Morning News (which we've posted here), Elliott's lists the job perks, including a flexible part-time schedule, ample parking for his security, and an employee discount for his "honey-do" project list.

    Sounds like a joke, right? "We are offering the position to Mr. Bush in all sincerity," said Kyle Walters, Elliott's president and CEO. "We think it would be a great fit for him as he settles back into life in Dallas."

    So should Dubya take the job? Vote on the poll to the left, and tell us why (or why not) below.
