... I was so sure people all knew President Reagan was an actor? If US can have an actor turned president, why not a mangaka turn House of Representative?

I LOVE Kindaichi, and Rozen Aso seems like a cool guy, but this is such a huge thing that I can only hope for the better to win. Goodluck to both.
