You are either the sheep or the shepherd. Personally, I'd rather be the shepherd.
The only problem I see is Marat's tendency to say what's on his mind...or point out what candidly is 'Full of Sh*t'. Doing manager training you learn it's less about what you say and more about when to keep your trap shut.

He's running for Putin's rebranded People's Front Party, which wanted to distance itself from the disrepute of corruption that clung to the party's old name.

Not much more than the name may change, of course, and a Western-friendly face like Safin's will be helpful.

I agree with your last comment. Safin is a western friendly commodity. He has a huge contingent of fans all over the world (US especially). He is an intelligent man however I would still work on his 'Brand image' a little more before I would run for Parliament.

Russian politics may work a little different from western politics but I would fancy his chances more once he had a family and financial success beyond tennis. People would be more likely to take him more seriously, right now he still has the stigma of a international playboy.
