Leaders in democratic nations are often more of a figurehead than a person of absolute power, because they must rely heavily on other legislative bodies (e.g. Senate, House). This means that a prime responsibility is appearing strong and stable to their citizens and intelligent and charismatic to international leaders. It is perfecfly acceptable, then, for a politically illiterate individual to vote for superficial reasons such as attraction and articulacy, amirite?

Yeah the last sentence just killed the post..

In the US, since I don't know much about other countries' governments, of course the president doesn't have absolute power. That's kind of the point of a three-branch government, and it doesn't mean he has no power. Politically illiterate people shouldn't vote, in my opinion, because they can screw up the vote count for people who actually care about the election.
