Bad news for John Edwards. And explanation, perhaps, for why Karl Rove has never run for public office, from the journal Science:
Scientists have found that voters frequently pick the candidates with more mature looks, exuding competence, over those who have certain features -- round face, big eyes, small nose, high forehead, small chin -- in other words, a babyface.
Reverse-engineering, this would mean a square face, beady eyes, big nose, low forehead, and big chin is the ideal politician. America, meet your next president, Mr. Jay Leno. — GREG BEATO
