Kasparov for President ?

 3/13/2005 -
    Here is an interesting Link about Garry Kasparov's plans.

 Back in December of 2002, this reporter had an opportunity to ask Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov a few questions. I had just completed my boardside coverage for ChessFm  of the Kasparov vs. Karpov rapid match in New York City.   Karpov had won the match by a 2.5-1.5 score. I attended the the post match press conference. I had the opportunity to ask the following question.

 Hangin: "Garry you been a world champion for 15 years, you've been the number one rated player for 20, how much longer can you stay at the top?" 

Garry Kasparov : "If I keep playing like this, not too long. (JOKING)  I don't know, maybe for a few more years. It's getting tougher all the time."

 I think Kasparov has been contemplating his retirement decision for some time now.


 Hangindamous predicted this back in January of 2004.
