Male on Monday: For the love of….politicians?

The Pink Heart Society are delighted to welcome back Harmony Evans as she talks politicians...

Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac. - Henry Kissinger

Early last year, I was right in the middle of a job search. There was a position in Ithaca, New York and while I was doing research on the town, I happened upon an article about their mayor: Svante Myrick.

Svante Myrick - Mayor: Ithaca, New York
Currently serving a second term, this guy at age 27 is one of the youngest mayors in U.S. history and one of the youngest African-Americans elected in history.

The man has quite the resume, plus he’s a cutie too.  Definitely hero-inspiring!

And it got me thinking:  Can politicians be sexy?

And furthermore: Could I ever fall in love with a politician?

The answer to the latter is riddled with “maybes”.  I’m really not “in” to politics, but if there are gorgeous men involved, maybe I should be! J

But to the former question, can politicians be sexy (in spite of their politics)? I believe the answer is a resounding yes!

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character,
give him power. - Abraham Lincoln

Many politicians get a bad rap, but they can’t all be power-hungry people who don’t care about their constituents. Can they?

I’m going to play Devil’s advocate here. I’m willing to bet they are just trying to stay the course and figure life out…just the rest of us! They are normal, intelligent people under extraordinary pressure who are (for the most part) trying to make a difference in a world that is often resistant to change.

So…put your political views aside for a moment, and feast your eyes on these guys!  

Have a great week!
