They say that soccer and politics never mix, but what happens when they do? In Liberia, former World Player of the Year George Weah first ran for president in 2005, a year after the country's bloody civil war had ended. He lost out to current President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Now he's studying in America to prepare for another campaign in 2011. But in a war-ravaged country like Liberia, some critics fear the soccer star could be dangerously out of his depth. Life goes on the road in Liberia to canvass the views of Liberians themselves.
