Who is the best-looking presidential candidate, regardless of political party?

Rep. Ray LaHood (R-Ill.): “Mitt Romney, bar none. His hair is dyed absolutely perfectly to show the right amount of gray and black.”

Rep. Robert AderholtRobert Brown AderholtTrump launches all-out assault on Mueller probe Republicans rally around Sessions after Trump criticism GOP leaders are unified: Firing Mueller a bad idea MORE (R-Ala.): “That’s hard, asking a guy a question about that. Everyone talks about Romney as far as his youthful appearance, in contrast to Fred Thompson being a lot older and maybe having health concerns. Rudy Giuliani appears to be older and not quite in the shape that Romney is. I’d probably say Romney envisions what a presidential candidate would look like. That certainly wouldn’t be a good way for anyone to choose [his or her] vote.”

Rep. David Davis (R-Tenn.): “You know, I don’t think about those issues. I’m deeper than that. I think about substance.”

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.): “You have to determine whether you’re using European or African standards. In order to talk about best-looking … you have to determine who determines that. It’s a very awkward question.”

Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.): “Chris Dodd. He’s a sage, wise man.”

Rep. Ric Keller (R-Fla.): “I guess most people would say Romney. Did you want me [to choose] a woman? How about this? Hillary, the best-looking woman, and Romney, the best-looking guy.”

Rep. Charles Gonzalez (D-Texas): “Oh, John Edwards. He’s a real good-looking Dennis Quaid. Second best-looking is Mitt Romney.”
