Obama's name was the only new one on the list of 19 world leaders whom respondents were asked to rate. Approval of the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, rose to 77 percent, from 71 in the previous poll, but it was not enough to match Obama's 80 percent. Ratings for other world leaders stayed more or less the same.

What is the world coming to, when you don't have to do anything and get respect. No wonder everybody thinks they are owed it.

I didnt figure you guys would have a snappy answer about the great world leader you all voted for...(I voted for him to) And I dont feel persecuted by you guys anymore. My skin has thicked over the last few days, say what you want.

I dont guess he is intellectual smart enough to admit he doesnt believe in anything. Obama that is.

You voted for a non-believer?

No snappy answer needed - the Dalai Lama has been on that list for a long time and I don't know if "athiest" is the term I would use to describe him...tattoo, you are not 'stirring up" anything. No one has a problem with a believer as President, it's a bit of a job requirement anyways. What we do have a problem with is when they feel it is their duty to advance their own faith based notions on everyone else.
