Well, open homosexuality and nazi sympathy is definitely a turn off.
But I read the link you provided regarding Philipp Rösler ( I actually saw his business forum in Stanford, CA some time back ). I thought he was reasonably business friendly and definitely NOT a socialist (plus, I was surprised as to how good his English was ). What’s wrong with him anyway?
Regardless his other talents, I would say obviously his failed leadership to inspire.
