In the past, I would have called this a manifestation of "shallow", but nowadays I generalize more and say that it is the inherent dumbness of all human beings.

We all are stuck in a fairy tale world where leaders are supposed to look good. It could be genetic.

The only reason I mentioned her looks was in order to draw some attention to this (in my opinion) interesting news piece that had only been viewed about 20 times. It appears to have worked :)

Leaders should be good looking. We don't want ugly leaders.

I think, based on that, American people have a very hard choice this year:

The Texan Monkey vs The Botox Junkie.

I want Hillary to run.

well she was 10 years younger back then.... I think it's her hair and her sexy sharis that were attractive. Maybe her voice too......

How could people have seen your comment without having viewed the thread ? Well, you see when there is a post with 0 replies and 20 views, I think it indicates the topic is not of much interest. But if someone replies and points out something interesting it could generate a discussion :)

haha, I knew somebody was gonna say this.... ppl often think I am joking but I really did have that crush... I am just trying to find out why? She doesn't look attractive anymore though :( I still like her voice. I remember browsing through the Observer and Ittefaq just for her pics! That was one of the reason why I watched the BTV news too.

here is a pic of her if anyone forgot how she looks like

lol, it's nothing sexual.. that's just nasty right there. I don't know if crush is the right word...

At 9/10, I probably found sex disgusting (I still find it somewhat disgusting except when i am horny).

Genetic may have been superseded by plastic surgery, liposuction, botox etc.
Basically "genetic" may have been superseded by how much money you have and are prepared to spend on make-overs.
