President and novelist?

If there are no songs about him, there should be... Song challenge time?

It's a surprise how often countries pick educated, even artistic leaders. Especially South America.

Best known for his novel, Doña Bábara, about the Venezuelan plains, and civilizing influences there. The English translation was published in NY in 1931, and is available from used book dealers with Abebooks, etc.

(mutters under her breath): Only if you think of American politics as the standard.

It's one of the things that gives me faith in humanity -- occasionally, we recognise intelligence and quality.

In a smaller area the voters may actually know something about a candidate; in a place like the US the spin doctors and ad men rule. In other words, most of the time the election goes to the highest bidder.
