Last election there are 110 aspiring celebrities that run for Public Office, 46% of them won. Not bad. Celebrities or any other profession, are all welcome to run for any position possible.

Some will raise eyebrow on the issue but I don't mind. Celebrities have ample advantages, they are known publicly and that is one of the most important factor. Second, the  voting public quite have a feel on what kind of personality the celebrity has. One way or the other, we already have a glimpse of what to come, but not entirely of course. None can know the future. But I am one of the few who like to try other options possible.
