I Voted for Him Before He Wasn't Handsome
Posted by Shadi Hamid

"He is an attractive man, handsome"; "matinee-idol handsome"; "He's tall, he's attractive, he's charismatic";" and my favorite - "an extremely handsome man with a head chiselled from marble." Who is this wonderful personage, this receptacle of the hopes of a nation longing for a man who would guide them from the abyss of unattractive, stodgy politicians into the promised land of Kennedy-like inspiration and oratory? Barack Obama perhaps? Nope. John Kerry. Before he wasn't handsome. Check out Ezra's great post for the full list.
