"For too long, citizens of the world have suffered under the tyranny of unattractive leaders," explains the "About" page of Hottest Heads of State, a website devoted to ranking -- and cracking jokes about -- the attractiveness of world leaders. Ukraine's Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, best-known for her braids, holds the #1 spot on the list. Coming in second place is Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg. The jury had this to say:
What is wrong with Norway? If I were Norway, I would just declare Jens Stoltenberg Supreme Prime Minister for Life or Until He is No Longer That Hot, rather than risk the possibility of electing a less hot prime minister. But that's the difference between me and Norway: I am right and Norway is wrong.
Barack Obama places 15th, just ahead of Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin who is 18th. At the end of the list is Sovereign of Vatican City Pope Benedict XVI and North Korea's Kim Jong-il.
