Most Attractive Candidates for office in 2004.
My party (the NDP) has a couple of fine looking candidates this year. Here's the first one that springs to mind, Melanee Thomas, our candidate in Lethbridge, AB, in my neck of the woods.



As someone who has met Mel in the flesh, I can confirm that she does her photo justice (or vice-versa)

Here's our candidate in Trinity-Spadina, the ever-styling Ms. Olivia Chow.



I had to include her, if only for the photo.

What about you lot?

3. am afraid most candidates here
aren't particularly cute. Uhh, Byron, that's not why you are supposed to vote for them? (They are both cute by the way.)

We like our candidates around here to be pretty earthy, older and kind of seasoned looking. It is Pittsburgh after all. :) Maybe someone in my neck of the woods will prove me wrong.

4. I know, the looks are just a bonus above and beyond

their political skills. I could put a few guys up to even the score, but I haven't found any I considered that attractive yet. I'm sure some of the earthy ones are pretty hot.

On edit, I would put Svend Robinson MP in, but he isn't running as of the moment, so is excluded, I'm afraid.

Apparently the ladies like him.

12. strangely enough I have been told that some misguidied females
find Mr Santorum, the nemesis and sadly, Senator, in my massively unaware and confused state, attractive. Yuk. (hmmm, oddly though, I became so used to seeing his picture on someone's sig, that I had begun to find it less objectionable.) Disturbing, no?

for some naive reason, Canadian politics seem more interesting than ours here... more variety perhaps?

14. Our politics are certainly colourful. That's for sure.
Y'know, I was not familiar with what Santorum looked like, so I just assumed that was a photo of Mr. Whitacre.

20. are you serious? That is really funny.
that is why I noticed his posts in the first place, since it was, unfortunately, a face I am all too familiar with. I spend a lot of my time ranting about what an awful Senator he is and sent $ to his last opponent. My husband was very relieved when he did not have to see Rick's ugly mug any more when I was perusing DU. Oops I shouldn't say that, it might reappear. :)

21. actually he is who I dislike and rant about the most!
It was just that I had seen his picture so much that I was getting used to it. Kind of an associative thing, I guess.

6. Assemblywoman Nicole Parra (Bakersfield, CA)
What a hell-hole she's from, but she's a Democrat, and considered the best looking woman in the legislature.

13. OK, this guy (ran in primary for congress) is hot, and he's gay!
He ran for Gephardt's seat in Missouri. He actually reminds me a lot of my partner, so I don't feel guilty saying that he's hella fine.
