New President


Aso Taro (麻生太郎・あそうたろう), the 68 year old Secretary General of the current administration, was selected as the JDP (自民党) President today. Aso had tried to become the Prime Minister in both of the last two selection processes, but striking many as right-wing, militaristic, and slippery, he failed to get the position. I don’t know much about what a party President does, but it might be like when Dean was made the Democratic Party Chairman in America.
