Do you think that the elected presidents should lead their countries, or get married with ugly ex-models?

Personal lives do not determine leadership capabilities.

Have aught with Sarkozy? I’m more troubled with his other bedfellow, Dubya.

ahhh! i gotcha! i don’t see why they can’t do both. and i agree with squirbel. at least, dubya’s time is coming to an end.

also, i think society has become too wrapped up in the personal lives of public figures, be they politicians, athletes, or entertainers.

I agree with the squirbel. This reminds me of a classic scenario

—————————————————————————————————————————
It is time to elect a new world leader. Here are the facts
about the three candidates.

Candidate A. = Associated with crooked politicians, and
consulted with an astrologist. He’s had two mistresses. He
also chain smoked and drank 8 to 10 martinis per day.

Candidate B. = He was kicked out of office twice, slept
until noon, used opium in college and drank a quart of
whiskey every evening.

Candidate C. = He was a decorated war hero, a vegetarian,
didn’t smoke, drank an occasional beer and never cheated on
his wife.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

…which just goes to show that there is more to a leader than their personal life.

@perchik – Churchill used opium in college? Fascinating.

I think Carla Bruni is kind of hot. And her music album isn’t bad either. But that’s beside the point. I agree with those above, that the personal life of a pres isn’t so important in the grand scheme of things. If Sarkozy can do a decent job, he can walk hand-in-hand on the beach with whomever he wants.

@christy, I used that example without actually doing the research. I’ve seen that example before…and I just found a website that claims to have done some of the research. It appears some things were embellished, here’s the link

i mean, well, she’s not “ugly,” but she could lighten up on the mascara on the lower eyelid.
