Of our current world leaders, do you imagine many of them smoke cigars regularly? My favorite historical leader who was an aficionado is Winston Churchill, but I wonder how many current statesmen partake.

As soon as I saw the title of this thread I thought of Winston Churchill! I think Obama is a cigarette smoker, right? I wonder if enjoys a good cigar now and then too.

I especially like this Churchill's quote: ał?My rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite smoking cigars and also the drinking of alcohol before, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them.ał?

The first person that comes to mind is Fidel Castro, but not necessarily the type of person you would want to associate with cigar smoking if you were trying to attract newcomers to cigars.

I would choose Che Guevara if he were still alive He's one of those persons who was liked by a lot of people - he was very charismatic.
As for the today leaders, I don't even remember one of them smoking cigars, just Fidel Castro, perhaps, but I don't like him that much.

My guess is that the answer to this question is, "More than meets the eye." Politicians this day and time have to be careful of the messages they are sending, so I can see how promoting of smoking may not be wise for them. Still, I think politicians have vices, too. Smoking has to be one of them.

I think I've seen photos of President Obama smoking a cigar. He would have to accept one while in certain countries, I guess, as part of the protocol of that country. I do think I've seen him do it for his own pleasure.

I was reading about some of my spouse's ancestors. They ran a tobacco shop on Capitol Hill back in the mid 1800s. They had a bench outside where President Lincoln used to come, sit, smoke a cigar and chew the fat. They have a photo of his inauguration parade or his funeral cortege, I forget which, with the tobacco shop in the background. That's so cool!

It seems that it is not too popular to smoke cigars now. It is considered that world leaders should be an example for their people, and since smoking is not allowed, they do not smoke (or do not show their smoking habit in public).

Hadn't Barack Obama smoked cigars in the past? Or was it the cigarettes that he quit after he has been elected for the first time?

-----------------
if you just want to think, there's nothing better than taking a good cigar
