Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto is assissinated and who is picked to take her place as the party leader? Her 19 year-old son:

Slain Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto‘s son took over as chairman of her party Sunday and immediately vowed to fight for democracy as revenge for her assassination. At an emotional news conference where his father was presented as co-chair of the Pakistan People’s Party, the 19-year-old Bilawal Bhutto, an Oxford University student untested in politics, said he was ready to lead.

I realize that an individual whose president goes by the name of George W. Bush is not in the best place to criticize the democratic machinations of other countries, but really, the head of a major political party in wild Pakistan is no place for a 19 year-old, I don’t care who his mother and grandfather are.
