Is Giuliani one of the 5 best known Americans?
While in England this week, Rudy Giuliani made a fairly outrageous claim.
"I'm probably one of the four or five best known Americans in the world," Giuliani told a small group of reporters at a posh London hotel as onlookers gathered in the lobby to gawk at actor Dustin Hoffman, who was on a separate visit.Huh? Ask a thousand Europeans at random to name 10 Americans off the top of their heads and he would be named even five percent. Tom Cruise, Tiger Woods, Lebron James, George Bush, Oprah, Harrison Ford and dozens of others would come to mind before the former mayor would. I doubt he is even one the 5 best known Americans in America. Whether we like it or not, our entertainment obsessed population is much more aware of athletes, actors and musicians than politicians.
