Michelle Obama: The "Hottest" U.S. Political Figure

by at . Comments

The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, was just named the "hottest" political figure in Quinnipiac University’s “national thermometer poll.”

The poll gauged voters’ feelings toward 23 national political figures.

TD, Michelle!

Michelle Obama registered 60.1 degrees. Husband Barack Obama, came in fourth behind former President Bill Clinton and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The poll measures popularity in degrees on a thermometer, with 100 the highest score. While we have no problem with Michelle, this is funny for two reasons:

  1. That Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton are even on it, as they don't actually have to govern anything and anger people ... that helps the popularity.
  2. The temperature scale seems even more arbitrary than our +/- Jersey Shore recap system. Is 60.1 degrees high? Low? Who knows!

Among the Republicans considering a White House run in 2012, Mike Huckabee scored best with 51.8 degrees, Natalie Portman bashing and all.

For whatever it's worth, Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi finished last in this latest poll, with a temperature of 32.9 degrees.

Who actually votes for this poll??? I'm just saying, with all of that under arm hair on Michelle Obama I almost think that Germans voted in this poll. PS - Kirsten Gillibrand is probably the hottest politician that we have. Sarah Palin is much hotter than Michelle Obama but she isn't in politics (either is Michelle Obama for that matter).
