But real mystery in election is why Mr Soong say he run but only pretend.
Mr Soong only pretend is obvious because vice president he is crazy man.
Anyone can see him crazy.
So maybe KMT give big money Mr Soong for him pick crazy man and not take 10% votes same same before.
I think good "conspiracy", better more than "Who shot JFK?"

Not as crazy as the people who actually voted for Soong.... that's all I'm gonna say. :D

Back to Tsai, does anybody the reason that she is still single?

As a matter of personal preference, I do not ever vote for candidates who are single.
(i.e. unmarried man or woman, excluding those whose spouses are deceased, of course)

There has been speculation, but I wouldn't want to dignify it. Perhaps she is just too dedicated to public life to find time for a private life. Perhaps she likes being single, or perhaps she's been genuinely unlucky in not bumping into the right person for no particular reason - there is a lot of luck in life.

I too have a prejudice against deceased candidates. Something about them gives me the creeps and I'm not sure they are capable of understanding or representing the needs of the living.

Judge her on her stated policies and your perception of her judgement calls.

Who cares what her orientation is.

Anybody see the news about Soongs aide who got paid 300000ntd but had to give up his American passport to run in the election? Now he is stuck in Taiwan until the visa free when he says he will go back to the US where his family lives. He was complaining about soong ignoring him and wasting his time for just 300,000 votes. Bizarre stuff. I believe Soong spends a lot or most of his time in the US too where his family lives but the media didn't seem to question him on this either. This would explain why he only seems to pop up around election time. I don't know if it's true or not, it's just what I heard.

I agree. His orientation matters. Or is that occidentation? It is relative, I suppose.
