Who's Holier? The Dalai Lama, or Barack Obama?
More and more, leadership is all about having an in with the big guy upstairs. We took two wildly popular leaders, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, and the junior Senator from Illinois Barack Obama, and asked you to decide who, when the chips are down, could most effectively play the divine favor card?
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. — Dalai Lama
You know, my faith is one that admits some doubt. — Barack Obama
I hope no one minds too much that I closed this poll a few hours early to make room for the epic Nickels/Rickles debate. While the Dalai Lama handily beat out Barack Obama for the title of Most Holy, the biggest vote getter of all was "There is no God." Something to think about.
