As a person who has never been on the US nor has any sort of link with it as a country, i'd still answer No. A country is just a country. If someone that's not been born and raised on it wishes to govern it, it most likely isn't because he likes the beaches and shores.
Even if the US is currently the biggest and most globalized country in the world, historically, this is just a fad. And you'd be doing yourself no favors giving control of such a heavily nationalist culture to a foreigner.
