Most Desired Celebrity Neighbor? It's Obama

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Dec 30, 2009 6:20PM

An internet poll shows that our own President Barack Obama is the most favored choice of celebrity neighbors. Most interesting is the tie for second place: Sarah Palin & entertainment's lesbian power couple Ellen & Portia. What celebrity do folks NOT want to live next to? Octomom. But the best moment of the entire run-down comes from Obama's real-life Hyde Park neighbor, Bill Grimshaw, who said, "Personally, I'd go for some hot babe, for sure. "But the prestige of living next to the president is wonderful. And the main thing is the security. I don't lock my doors any more." Win.
