The best government.
Would be benevolent robot overlords, no? I believe that an all powerful AI would be able to do a much better job than any human government. It would be able to handle absolute power in a way that a human could not because it wouldn't have any self-serving instincts and could make far more optimal decisions.

Do you agree with me?

The best government.
Doesn't sound like you've ever programmed. The main reason I wouldn't agree with an AI-run government is because of GIGO.

No.

RE: The best government.
I'm pretty sure we've had this discussion ages ago actually.
Went along the lines of robots are robots and would do everything black and white where as the world is various shades of grey. You need discretion and common sense (ask Stevil about those) and you need to sway and react to different situations.

The best government you could have is a dictatorship where the dictator is a popular, good person.
Sadly dictators aren't always this (because they usually come into power via either birthright, coup or successful rebellion) so that is where democracy comes in.
