Picture perfect?


And so it begins…that is, unattractive photographs of John McCain. It’s always the case, good shot of the Democrat, poor shot of the Republican.


hillary-180.jpgWe get a few complaints like this every week, and I’m sure they’ll keep coming until November. I don’t happen to think this is a bad photo of the senator, at all. A candidate doesn’t need to be grinning and standing in front of the American Flag in order to look good. We try to show all candidates in a variety of natural situations. Sometimes people look great, sometimes not so great. I don’t think Senator Hillary Clinton asked for any extra copies of this recent Reuters photo, for instance: GBU Editor

US Elections:
I think this is something the whole world need. Thanks Reuters for giving us as is. I can rely on you guys. Hillary and Barack are doing a good job in showing the world how to win the hearts and minds of their constituents democratically by debating issues. Well done and wish them all the luck on their journey to White House. I am sure soon the rest of the world would follow including our neighbours Zim. Noko
