      I was watching a show on the top 10 celebrities of this year and our president made it on the list. Republican or Democrat I believe that a president should be a figurehead, powerful, elusive... not a celebrity. Celebrity's are fun to watch as they destroy their relationships or live glamorous lives we all could only dream of.

      Obama was only on that list because he is the first [half] Black president, which is not only a historic occurrence, but being that we are in the digital age, his campaign managers and personnel were able to use this to reach out to even more people and build his popularity up to the point where he reached celebrity status, and became an icon.

      Besides, he's not the one whose had his own reality shows, intentionally made ignorant or asinine statements to the press, had their family appearing on DWTS or posing for Playgirl like Bristol's Palin's baby daddy did. I wouldn't be surprised if the Palin family got their own series on E! There is enough dysfunction in that family to give the Kardashians a run for their money.

      Well, he was bound to make it on the list, since he,s a public personality. Right?

      I guess so, got to admit though I do agree with what TheMightyEddy said :) he is a pretty funny guy when he wants to be which I think is great :) most leaders of a Country are so plain and boring so it makes a change :)

      He still shouldn't be considered a 'celebrity' whether he is a pop-culture figure or not. He is not paid by how well he entertains us, his job is judged by how well he runs the country. That one is up for debate.

      Whatever your opinion is on WIKI, here is their definition:

      "A celebrity, also referred to as a celeb in popular culture, is a person who has a prominent profile and commands a great degree of public fascination and influence in day-to-day media. The term is synonymous with wealth (commonly denoted as a person with fame and fortune), implied with great popular appeal, prominence in a particular field, and is easily recognized by the general public."

      Someone go debate them :p

      No, celeb doesn't quite mean that, makingcents. Celebs just means he's prominent in his field and he's famous for what he did. So not exactly "how well he entertains us". Here's the wiki link for the celeb definition:

      I don't either RJH. I mean, celebs getting the spotlight and being in magazines and on tabloids is a very commonplace thing indeed.

      Exactly my point and he will just be figure head like the other ex presidents when he loses the presidency soon.

      It is a possibility I would think however it really does depend on how much of an impact he had on the American's and how much change he has made since going into office.
