LOS ANGELES (AP) – Think you’ve got what it takes to run for president?Â You could get your chance on the political reality show “Independent,” which MySpace and reality T-V producer Mark Burnett plan to launch next year.Â No T-V network has committed to the project yet. But contestants would meet the public and interact with supporters as well as protesters. An interactive “town hall” would give MySpace users and T-V viewers a chance to weigh in.Â The winner would get one (m) million dollars. But there’s a catch. The money could only be used to finance a run for the White House, or be given to a political action committee or political cause.Â Â Potential candidates should submit a video. Once the contestants are chosen, they’ll set up MySpace profiles to serve as their campaign headquarters.
