Bill Nye 'Announces' Presidential Run With Neil deGrasse Tyson

Posted: Updated:

"Bill Nye The Science POTUS" may have a nice ring to it, but would the famed "Science Guy" ever run for office?

A listener of the StarTalk Radio program, which was first hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, asked Nye that question in a recent episode.

His answer just may make your ears perk up. Check out the video above.

"Oh, sure, so Neil deGrasse Tyson and I are working on our cabinet," Nye says in the video, before offering positions to guest hosts comedian Eugene Mirman and former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino.

Let's just put that in context: Hillary Clinton hasn't even announced whether she will or will not run in 2016, and these two science guys are already shoring up their administration.

Nye's response was a joke, of course -- we doubt that there's really a "Secretary Of Court Jestering" position to hand out to one's radio friends -- but it makes us wonder what it would be like to have these two brilliant men in the highest offices in the land.

Nye/Tyson 2016, anyone?
