World Player of the Year wants to be President

Will FIFA's 1995 World Player of the Year George Weah get a chance to lead his country out of war and into peace? On Oct. 11, Weah will be one of 22 candidates running for the position of President of Liberia.

Some of his opponents have more political experience (one helped drive the former corrupt president from power), but as Weah points out, "Politicians have been up there and the masses have been down for many years. It is time for the masses to go up."

Don't know if he has a chance (or if he would even be good for the country), but it's always fun to watch this sort of thing.
