Who was the last "coolest man in America"?
Fee Republic ^ | 1/29/2011 | Krankor

Posted on 01/29/2011 3:43:36 PM PST by Krankor

There was a time, maybe thirty or forty years ago, before cable TV and cell phones, where one man could be so impressive in his accomplishments and force of personality, he would almost universally be recognized as the coolest man in America. His field could range from medicine, science, sports, politics or entertainment. Since the advent of the internet, though, this is no longer possible. Who, in your opinion, was the last "coolest man in America"?

Dick Cheney is still the coolest man in America. We learned to be cool from you, Big Time!

Last coolest or current coolest. There are some dead and alive ones shown. To me the last coolest man on earth was Jesus.

Am I the only one who wondered if “Fee Republic” was a knock-site that charged members??

I thought, “maybe they post the articles for us?” :-)

Mom always liked Squantos best.

That’s why he got the watch and I got the undies.
