If the crowd is standing there, and Koike's walking along shaking hands, then she's the passerby not them

Be a serious bug to the LDP and Abe as one of their own chose to buck their system and take the initiative on their own.

Perhaps. But in a way that Ishihara Shintaro might have done. With her rightist views she seems to be his reincarnation. Even if he is still alive.

She's worst. She wishes Tokyo to be equipped with a nuclear missile. https://www.yuriko.or.jp/bn/column-bn/column2003/column030320.shtml She's ultraconservatism and is seggie. "Nippon-kaigi" , "Zaitoku-kai" and "Shikishima-kai" of a far right group are supporting.

Koike is a member of Nippon Kaigi. Don't be fooled just to move in a female candidate.

Aside from the Tokyo gubernatorial election, I hear Ms. Koike has a lot of guts for a woman. In adition to that, she's very charming. Nice picture! ;‑)

My wife knows people who know her quite well, mainly through work, and all agree that she is a total nutjob.

The lady Koike is shaking her hand...saying....hahahahahhahaha...another nut job for the job....hahahahahahahaha...

Personally I liked her until I found out she's a member of that Nihon Kaigi...another right-winger...too bad.

She's a female blend of Abe and Ishihara. A pity. She speaks Arabic and otherwise seems intelligent

Why does she 'speak Arabic'?

Her dad thought it would be useful for strengthening relations with Arab countries, in case Japan fought a war over oil again. I'm pretty sur that's what Article 9 has prevented. This was back when she was in her 20s, so her views have been right for a long time. It's all in Wikipedia
