Chess in Politics

A couple of months ago, I wrote something about the exploitation of chess. The chessic metaphor is just about everywhere. Sports, self-improvement, insurance, and, of course, politics - all these exploit chess in some form or other.

Just today, some bloke claimed he played chess with a terrorist. But who else deploys the chessic metaphor more competently than a Pinoy paper - the Manila Times?
