Kanan Makiya

While I agree with this:
Kanan Makiya would be an excellent first president of a Free Iraq. His actions and his writings have been truly courageous.

... I think that there are some very good reasons it will never happen, one of the largest being that he is married to an Indian Catholic woman.
...and a professed and often evangelical atheist (as it were), even without a Catholic wife of another nationality, would not have much of a chance at the US presidency -- how much less would he have a chance at being accepted as the leader of a country whose citizens and whose (former?) allies have occasionally expressed fears that the US is trying to destroy Islam!
