10 politicians that could easily out-cool Obama

On 20 January 2017, Barack Hussein Obama will close The White House doors for the last time.

The United States of America will bid farewell to a president that’s introduced affordable healthcare to the millions, successfully navigated through a crippling recession, legalized same-sex marriage and so much more.

But on top of all his professional achievements, Americans will lose, unquestionably, the coolest POTUS of all time. From on-screen triumphs like his Between Two Ferns interview and Jimmy Kimmel’s 'Mean Tweets' skit, all the way down to bossing podium speeches by either brushing dirt off his shoulder à la Jay-Z or actually mic-dropping to conclude his final correspondents’ dinner, POTUS nailed it.

An Obama-free political landscape already feels like a pretty beige prospect, right? Well actually, wrong.

From snowboarders to cosmonauts, hero comedy writers to actual battle rappers, these are the coolest politicians from around the world that we’d happily high five rather than handshake once ‘Bama’s out for good.
