Yeah, that's why :unsure:



Swiss tennis star Roger Federer tracking US presidential race

The Associated Press
Wednesday, April 2, 2008

KEY BISCAYNE, Florida: Roger Federer says young people seem to be following the U.S. presidential race this year — and that includes him.

The 26-year-old Swiss tennis star said he became interested in the campaign during his offseason last winter.

"I was following it more actually when I was in Switzerland and not playing," Federer said following his fourth-round victory at the Sony Ericsson Open on Tuesday. "Now, in America, I don't know, it's almost too much of it."

Federer did not identify his favorite candidate. Republican hopeful John McCain was expected to face one of the Democrat challengers, Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

"For me it's hard to compare, because until now I didn't really follow it," he said. "So this is the first year, and so I just want to see how it really works.

"I couldn't believe that it takes that long, you know. There's so much talk about it for like a year in advance, which is tough for the president, it seems. But, look, it's the way it is. People are really into it. Seems like the younger generation is more into it. I think that's key to this race."

It's Ralph Nader's fault. :sad:

I can't believe I'm saying this about such a mug player that should be retiring right about now, but...stick to tennis, Roger.

I bet Federer has a thing for John Edwards. It's okay Rogi, we all do.
Federer: "You have the best Million Dollar Haircut."

Edwards: "No, silly, you have the best Million Dollar Haircut."



(Awkward pause)



Federer: "Um...I have to go see Mirka now."

Edwards: "Yeah, uh...I need to go and...endorse someone...I think."

Fed - stick to tennis. Politics is not your thing.

It's funny to me that Federer would be following the presidential race when he isn't one to really follow the news.

Once again - do read his comments on this matter, you might be able to conclude that he hardly follows it at all. Ah - too difficult I suppose.
:retard:

Rogi's following the news closely because he too wants to be Prezzie some day. ;)
I'm trying to decide whether I would rather see Federer win the French Open or become the President of the United States (assuming a constitutional amendment allowed for a foreign-born President). *Sigh* I guess I'd rather he win French--it's close, though.
