<TABLE class=tborder cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=6 width="100%" align=center border=0><TBODY><TR vAlign=top><TD class=alt1>Now that's a political and media reason, not one of importance."Just as an example, how many of you can name our head of state, head of goverment and leader of the opposition? I can name your President, Vice President, majority and minority leaders of the House and Senate."
These reason you can and most of us cannot is that in comparison to the US posts you mentioned, the Canadian posts are not as important to the rest of the world.
I wouldn't be suprised if there are people in countries around the world who don't even know the name of their own national leader, but know the US Presidents name.""
The less popular politicians always attract more media attention, its sells newspapers.
The reality is America is a super power and as such wants to doninate and influence the rest of the world affairs to suit its own ends and tends do do this on the basis on maintaining world peace . The real problem is its more relient on the rest of the world for resources like oil that they are on it.
