I was surprised to see Zardari showing his skills in US, calling GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin gorgeous…. was very smart move….guess he has learned the tricks of the trade…seems sharp.
It seems US is interested in Zardari (democratic govt, why shouldn’t they be?) , they are pledging over USD 14 bill through friends of Pakistan summit and Bush also spent over 35 minute lone discussion with Zardari.
Important part of discussion was the role of Pakistan army and ISI reforms.
I am sure future course of politics will be dominated by new course of war on terror and US direction. Zardari’s calling Karzai over his oath taking ceremony and his speech was directed towards international forces and welcomed by the world that matters.
To me it seems Zardari is going to stay at the lime light and our middle class fellow in Karachi and Lahore will remain busy in sharing emails and sms jokes about Zardari. Have busy time dudes :P
This part is funny and awesome, “during his visits, a handler from Zardari's entourage then told the two politicians to keep shaking hands for the cameras. "If he's insisting, I might hug," Zardari said. Palin smiled politely in response.”
US election is around but it seems Sexist treatment of Palin is not stopping, lets see what comes next for Palin.
Lastly let me add here, some one rightly said (I must say, Zardari has better taste than the previous Prime Minister.Shaukat Aziz went for Condoleeza Rice:P)
