Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin seems to be a hit among the heads of third world countries. She may be struggling to win the hearts of American voters but she has already made a good impression on the leaders of South Asia. Pakistan’s newly elected widower President was mesmerised by her beauty.
“Gorgeous,” this is how Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari described Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin when she met him in New York.”You look so gorgeous. Now, I know why the whole of America is crazy about you,” Zardari said, while receiving Palin, also the Governor of Alaska, at the Millennium Hotel in New York. “You are so nice,” 44-year-old Palin, a former Miss Wasilla runner up in Alaska beauty pageant, told Zardari, husband of slain former Pakistani Premier Benazir Bhutto. An aide of Zardari then told the two to keep shaking hands for the cameras. “I’m supposed to pose again,” said Palin, who has energised the Republican Presidential nominee John McCain’s camp. “If he’s (aide) insisting, I might hug,” 53-year-old Zardari replied, for which Palin smiled politely in response. The conversation was captured on a camera and telecast later.
