You yanks are political freaks! Canucks see politicians for what their worth. Unfortunately we in Canuckland have had no one to get excited about since Pierre Trudeau. Have had charisma. We all thought you Yanks had something special with President Obama, but a good look at Obamacare took care of that. Too bad you can't jail lobbyists for buying votes in your House. But he did kill Osama, that was pretty cool.
