Who's the 'Hottest Politician' in America?

He's hotter than the man-child in the White House, but not quite as "hot" as the wife of the man-child. I'm thinking by "hot" they're talking about a Q rating or something and not sexual desirability. Least hot, or "coolest" is Nancy Pelosi. Now that makes sense.
Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie nabbed the "hottest politician" title among those in elected office, according to a new national survey.

First lady Michelle Obama received 60 degrees on the "feeling thermometer," followed by 59.2 degrees for former President Bill Clinton and 57 degrees for Christie in a new Quinnipiac University poll that asked voters to rate their feelings about politicians and national figures from 0 to 100 degrees.

However, 55 percent of those surveyed did not know enough about Christie to form an opinion, which is significantly higher than the four percent for Michelle Obama and two percent for Clinton.

President Barack Obama garnered 56.5 degrees, beating former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani at 52.3 degrees, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 51.8 degrees and House Speaker John Boehner at 51.1 degrees.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi received the "coolest" rating from voters with 32.9 degrees. With 34.8 degrees, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was second from the bottom, below former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin with 38.2 degrees and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 42.7 degrees.

"The Obama Misery Index and the Rise of Obamavilles" is the best blog post I've read in a long time. This is why President Obama will be a one-term president!

I can't recommend this piece highly enough. This will be all the ammo we'll need when talking to other voters during the 2012 general election.
