(Newser) – Barack Obama may have won a Nobel Peace Prize, and Yulia Tymoshenko has not, but there’s one thing the Ukrainian prime minister has over the president: She’s ranked No. 1 on HottestHeadsofState.com. The site offers “scientific and unbiased rankings” of world leaders’ hotness, complete with piercing observations like, “Kabila stands out among his African peers, because he doesn’t have scars on his face.”

Obama is way down at #15 on the list, below the likes of Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus, but ahead, at least, of Vladimir Putin at #18. In dead last? Kim Jong-Il, at 172. You can see the top 10 in our slideshow at left, or click the source for the full list.
