Is that a woman running for office? She's allowed to have her picture, with no burkka, plastered all over the place?

Knowing absolutely nothing about any of these candidates, I'd vote for the guy with the green background in his picture. That's a keen hat

They look more like the 'Wanted' pictures in the post office than campaign posters to me.

The problem is globalization. When the style(material) becomes a profitable export, either to the next country or the next continent, the money talks and the sheep die. Sorry sheep, nothing personal, strictly business.

The guy with the green background looks just like some character actor - even down to the beard and moustache. I know I've seen that face in a movie... I just can't come up with it.

That guy with the green background (president Karzai) looks like Ben Kingsley. Gandhi, Shindler's list and about 40 other movies plus probably 100 stage plays.

I've heard the women candidate interviewed, she says she has had some real obsticles to overcome and is not given the same opportunities as the men are.

I'm so glad Mr. Rove is ready to help win hearts and minds in Iraq.

When I saw the dude in green, I immediately thought of Vedek Yarka in Deep Space Nine, played by actor Eric Avari.

That's been bugging me since the picture was first posted. I couldn't figure out where I'd seen the guy. I've never seen Deep Space Nine. But he also played the museum director in "The Mummy". Remarkable resemblance to the politician.

Yes! that's who he is! It'd been bugging me also
