The story begins with the deaths of ruling party’s Fukuoka legislator and his eldest son, his heir apparent, in an accident. It is decided that a by-election will be held, and Kanbayashi Masaichi, the leader of the ruling party, and secretary Miyama Rika conceive the idea of fielding the second son, Asakura Keita, who had been renounced by his father.

After Keita graduated from senior high school, he went on to a university in Nagano because he wanted to live in a place with beautiful stars, and eventually became an elementary school teacher over there. Well-liked by children and satisfied with his beloved star gazing, Keita has no interest in the world of politics. However, at Rika’s persuasion and the pressure of his family, he reluctantly decides to announce his candidacy.

Upon returning to Fukuoka, Keita is given a hearty welcome by supporters. The election strategist, Nirasawa Katsutoshi, arrives there. He is guided by the notion “election is the only permitted legal war” and begins Keita’s election campaign.

whee....i think kimura is so cool in this drama!!!!

I like the part where the interior minister lies with a straight face that takuya has decided to resign after meeting him at the hospital. You would probably meet this sort of people in the real world

my fav parts:

ep 6 where kimura asked the press media to limit all criticises to him and only him, do not drag other normal ppl into the bigger picture.

ep 6, when the reporters asked him whether will real romance blossom btw him and his secretary and he replied 'of coz, which man couldn't be attract to a charming woman like that?'

ep 5, where the american minister come and asked him what is stated in page 2 section 13, and when everyone thought kimura confirm cannot utter anything, he said out the whole thing word by word.

:D
