Rajan Samuel,
Something that probably does not exist in your political process is something called Character and Integrity and history of FREE WILL.

Western leaders, especially the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES - has to be able to stand up to scrutiny from a vast array of perspectives and past history. This is not a small thing - it must be washed clean, we, unlike what India sees and goes through, have a process by which we grill and process our leaders.

I am glad you are happy to express your views on this process - but I think it is also important to point out that - your political process is nothing even close to what the United States puts on the table.

So you my friend ,,, should sit back ,, and marvel at what true FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY are all about, I am glad you want to be part of the process. But please give us a break as to how it is supposed to go..

Cheers

SS
