This Week In Politics

**In this series we highlight some of my latest additions to my political card collection.**

I guess I should mention that my definition of political cards is a little beyond just cards of politicians.  I throw about "political cards" as anything non-sports related cards...so which means this week we're talking poets, satellites, and generals.  

There's maybe only one better Whitman beard photo and so this card scores some major points with me...by the way, anyone have any 2011 Obak news?

One national hero closer to completion.  I'm down to South Korea, Guatemala, Ukraine, and Switzerland
