A Trudeau enters the world stage
In an election held on 25th June 1968, the Canadian Liberal Party, led by the relatively unknown Pierre Trudeau, gained an effective majority. The father of the present Liberal prime minister was then still a bachelor, and, according to the wikipedia summary of the event was charismatic, intellectual, handsome, fully bilingual and, at public appearances, confronted by screaming girls. The charisma appears to have passed from father to son Justin.
