Bhuttos of Pakistan

Why is the western media so enamored by the Bhuttos of Pakistan? There is hardly any other family in Pakistani that has received as much media attention as the Bhuttos have? Why? Is it because in these times when the ‘war on terror’ is being fought in Pakistan and that country’s political future appears uncertain, the contingent of foreign correspondents working in Pakistan has grown and these journalists are filing reports on whatever they find worthy of coverage, and Benazir Bhutto’s assassination has put her family in the limelight? Is that it?
What do you think?
