After watching the presidential debates the past few weeks, which is essentially the only time we get to see the candidates "fight each other," I can't help but hope that someday we'll get a martial artist in the White House. The last one, I believe, was Theodore Roosevelt, and almost all of the chief executives we've had since pale in comparison.
Russia, after all, has Vladimir Putin,a judo black belt, Master of Sambo, ex-KGB spook who definitely knows a thing or two about arm-twisting. Putin has even offered to teach French president Nicolas Sarkozy some of his secret Soviet techniques. Last month French newspaper Le Figaro quoted Putin as saying, "He [Sarkozy] is interested in martial arts and we have decided to do some training together."
Maybe Sarkozy could teach Putin some mad how-to-snare-a-supermodel skills in return.
