These are five candidates from the Democratic Party of Japan, and one of them will become prime minister sometime on Monday.
I guess I am hoping for one of the two on the left. Did you know Mabuchi Sumio (2nd from left) is nicknamed Terminator because of his robotic look? Poor Japan is stuck in a revolving door of prime ministers played out by old daddies and backroom politics. Politically stagnant and not much to look at.
I’m going to miss PM Kan!
