Conservative former CEO wins South Korean presidency
The rise to power of president-elect Lee's conservative Grand National Party was expected to herald closer ties with the U.S. and a more critical view of relations with communist North Korea, which has been lavished with aid by incumbent liberal president Roh's administration.
Lee emphasized the economy in his campaign, promising to lift South Korea to among the world's top-seven economies.
Politics 101. It's all about the stupidity, economy.
'I am very happy and it is like retaking democracy after a decade' of liberal rule, said Lee supporter Park Mi-won.
It is amazing, isn't it, how leftism and true democracy are mutually exclusive?
