A Winner on Two Fronts

Hamid Karzai apparently has won an overwhelming victory in Aghanistan’s first presidential election, avoiding a run-off, unless some dubious voter fraud challenges succeed. He was already by acclamation (mine anyway) the world’s best dressed political leader. Have a look at him next to the frumpy Gerhard Schroeder in the photograph accompanying the link.

(Apropos the discussion below of leaders with high IQs, I suspect Karzai has one. Ditto Allawi.)
