Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade greets supporters during a campaign rally in Dakar this week. The country's constitutional council validated Mr. Wade's bid to run for a third term, even though the revised constitution sets a limit of two terms. Mr. Wade paid an Atlanta lobbying firm more than $200,000 to ensure that the limit didn't apply to him because he was already in power when it was adopted. (Associated Press)
