Science Fiction for the Next US President

Science fiction blog io9 asked six major political bloggers what single work of science fiction they would recommend as reading or viewing material for the next President, regardless of who is elected.  Read responses from Markos Moulitsas, Andrew Sullivan, Jonah Goldberg, Amanda Marcotte, Glenn Reynolds, and Kevin Drum as they explain what works they selected and how they are especially relevant for the world of today.

If you could only choose one work of science fiction for the next President to read or view, what would it be?

Heinlein's "Starship Troopers". If there's a better social commentary out there, I haven't read it. The only people who should have the right to vote, hold office, or even be a citizen, are those who have proven their willingness to put society's needs above their own.

The book- not the movie that shared the same title, but really had little else in common. :(
