Mrs.-cellaneous Awards

A thought that’s been on my mind for some time and I think I should share here with the millions of fans of this blog.  The following two women are my nominations for “The Hottest Women In The Public Eye (Non-Porn, Non-Celebrity) 2007” category –

Justification For Nomination : Akie (B)Abe : Lunch With The FT (excerpts) :
The lives of Japanese men and women, I say, strike me as being more separate than unequal.  The career-track salaryman is expected to show more devotion to his corporate family than to his wife and children.  “What do they say?” answers Akie, half-jokingly. “‘A good husband is healthy and never at home.'”…..Akie says she sought advice on being a First Lady from Cherie Blair and Laura Bush.  But something from Junichiro Koizumi, the bachelor prime minister, also stuck.  “He told me: ‘Every day as prime minister is hard, so when he comes home give him a big hug.'”  That would be the most traditional of “stand-by-your-man” sentiments were it not for her impulse to add an explanation.  “Perhaps there was no one to give Koizumi-san a hug back then,” she says in nudge-nudge fashion, referring to the former prime minister’s legendary celibacy while in office.  “But I think he’s having lots of fun now,” she adds saucily, throwing her head back and exploding into laughter…..

Her and Koizumi would’ve made a hell of a couple, come to think of it. 

Justification For Nomination : Mishal Husain : My reason to watch the 9 o’clock news every weekday :
“Stay with us for more.  We’ll be right back.”

Wow.  Deep.
