Cool leaders with hot movie stars!
As I hope you recall, I am conducting a scientific reader poll to decide which of several world figures – U.S. President Barack Obama, Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Britain’s Prince Charles – is the Coolest Leader Dude.
It’s not like I especially care or anything, but all the other poll questions have already been taken.
So this week I’m running daily random photos of these guys, so you can make an informed decision based on sunglasses, hats and attitude and stuff.
One hard thing about being a cool leader is not being eclipsed by cool Hollywood celebs. If you can seem cool next to folks who make movies, you’re well on your way to being the Coolest Leader Dude.
So here we have our nominees alongside famous actors George Clooney, Jack Nicholson and, um, Eric Idle, who happens to be in drag. Whatever.
If you’ve aleady voted, well, vote again. I frankly don’t have any way to stop you. And feel free to share this post with large Facebooks groups, like Hannah Montana, with 490,000 fans, and the U.S. Postal Service, with its 512 fans.
