Michael Levinson pioneered the innovative campaign technique of pumping gas for prospective voters at self-service stations.

Can you imagine Mitt Romney doing that?

On the NH Primary ballot in 1988, 1992 and 1996, he is now back in New Hampshire as a write-in candidate.

Levinson is known for his poetic prophecies (he claims his "Book of Lev" outlined the first Iraq War more than a decade before the first Bush saved Kuwait).

He also has a plan to build a fleet of 10,000 clipper ships (the old-fashioned kind with sails) to handle America's exports and imports. Learn more at: www.michaelslevinson.com/clippers.html

This clip is an excerpt from the 1996 documentary, "Why Can't I Be President?" which was produced for WGBH, WNET and other PBS stations.

That familiar narrator's voice you hear is none other than CNN's Wolf Blitzer.
