You may recall hearing about Ted Williams, the formerly homeless Ohio man whose smooth baritone vocals became an instant Internet hit after a Columbus Dispatch video went viral.

Now, the man with the "golden voice" has said he'd like to run for president as an independent in the upcoming election. His aspirations were made public this week on Scott Spears' "Now" radio program on WWGH-FM.



Williams told the Dispatch that as president he'd focus on fair housing, veterans' issues, jobs and improving schools, among other things.
