Obama would be a better Bond; McCain would make a better Judi Dench

From Parade Magazine:

I finally ask this British actor a deeply American question: “Who do you think would be the better James Bond—Barack Obama or John McCain?”

Craig doesn’t hesitate. “Obama would be the better Bond because—if he’s true to his word—he’d be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them. McCain, because of his long service and experience, would probably be a better M,” he adds, mentioning Bond’s boss, played by Dame Judi Dench. “There is, come to think of it, a kind of Judi Dench quality to McCain.”

Hi David !

If you want to discuss James Bond and politics ( or anything under the sun ) you could join Michael Holmberg´s expat meetup here :
The group has now 50+ members.

Here is the member list :

The next meetup is on Sunday the 9th of November. The location can only be seen by members.

It would be very nice if you could come along.

Have a great weekend !

Greeting from Bangkok, where the latest Jame Bond picture is now showing.

The last five "007" James Bond movies are more than ever smart
advertising stunts for alcohol, cars, guns, watches, italian suits etc.

It is called product placement. And it is mega big business.

And the brand names are never mentioned in the credits rolling out after the last scene. Why.

Please get back to me and mention the names of the above mentionned products.
