Lex for president would work in with the change in presidents in 2013 aswell as an undertone of political corruptness and something beyond a rich evil guy.
It's also a great way to establish Lex as Superman's arch-nemesis which we never really got in previous films. Luthor's greatest weapon is his intelligence, not his comedic timing.
