Hi, I'm shallow: political crushes

  1. Just an effort to inject a bit of levity into an otherwise "heavy" forum--- A couple of weeks ago while watching one of the Sunday morning news programs ( I think it was Meet The Press), former (and possibly future) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was being interviewed, and I was reminded that I used to have a bit of a crush on him. Not a Dear-Diary type of crush, or a stalker-type crush, but more of a Shhh!Everyone-must-be-quiet-while-this-interview-is-on type of crush.

    I'm sorry, but the man is hot, okay? He's always very polished and erudite and sophisticated and well-dressed and articulate and ironic and witty. Whatever you think of his politics, he's got charisma to burn. My fantasy would be to attend a White House dinner and be seated next to him. And have everyone seated around us be crashing bores, so that he only wanted to talk to me.

    And yes, he IS way too old for me, thanks for asking.

    Anybody else have a sneaking crush on a political figure (local, national or world leader)? Tony Blair? The Queen of Jordan? 'Fess up and share who and why!

    I think Tony Blair is kind of cute, but that's probably just the accent, and the fact that I am comparing him to other heads of state (not much competition in that area!).

    I can't really think of a political figure that I myself adore like that, but I must say, Stargazer, that Benjamin Netanyaho IS quite attractive.

    Gary, Hillary is not really a woman. She is something else entirely. I think you are confusing your crush on HER for me and Shay.

    Dan Quayle is cute. President Bush (W) is more handsome than his dad. Netanyahu (sic) is also attractive, I agree there.
