How Bilwal Is Like A Boy Band

Even though he lacks qualifications for office, Bilawal Bhutto Zaradari has one vocal base of support—female fans on Facebook:
Bilawal Bhutto, thrust into the political spotlight by the assassination of his mother in Pakistan, can count on support from at least one source -- female Facebook fans who describe him as "hot".

"Oh My God he's cute," said one contributor to "Let's not assassinate Bilawal Bhutto because he's hot, ok?," a new group on the social networking site after the 19-year-old was named last week to succeed his mother as leader of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP).

"Oh God, I totally agree. He's so sexy," added another member of the group, which so far had 48 members.
Like a boy band, Bilawal has a shelf life: he can be “hot” for only so long before being replaced by another “hottie” chosen by another generation of teeny-boppers. Hopefully, when that time comes, Bilawal will either have the political legs to lead the PPP, or fade into oblivion. If Bilwal does manage to stick around, he can return to the serious tasks of resurrecting the memories of his mother, his uncles and grandfather.
