16. Angelina Jolie
Few on the list are quite as qualified as Angelina Jolie to run for the Oval Office. Talk of her myriad philanthropic endeavors and her position as a special envoy to UNHCR, well this lady’s got the humanitarian experience. Since 2001, Jolie has been on field missions around the world and met with refugees and internally displaced persons in more than 20 countries, including Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Cambodia, Pakistan, Thailand, Ecuador, Kosovo, Kenya, Namibia, Sri Lanka, North Caucasus, Jordan, Egypt, New Delhi, Costa Rica, Chad, Syria, and Iraq, to name a few, and most recently visited earthquake victims in Haiti on her latest trip to help survivors of conflict and natural disaster.
She’s got a broader view of the world and is sure to win the hearts of many. Novelist and politician Jeffrey Howard Archer has already echoed his support for the actress should she consider running for office.
