It's quite an exact science. To explain it would just confuse you. XD
Aha. I see. Where did the 17 come from, pray tell?
Barack Obama scores a 17 on the scale, being the most good-looking politician. My friend and I just made this up one day.
Here's some examples:
Hillary Clinton - 4
Joe Biden - 0
Fred Thompson - 1
Mitt Romney - 18 (Mormons can defy scaling xD)
We originally said that it can only be used for U.S. presidential candidates, but then we changed it to politicians in general.
Good point. Well then, maybe it's the standard by which all other politicians are gauged?
Hell, I dunno. "Sex appeal" and "politicians" are utter and complete opposites to me. Evin290, care to elaborate?

So in theory, a politician could be up to seventeen times sexier than Barack Obama? Judging by the politicians I've seen, I'm guessing the obamater is a gauge that seldom moves at all... :-P
Maybe he's the unit of measurement on the obameter scale.
Haha! I wonder where the man himself would rank? :-)
