Dead Pool front-runners

Lair is still recovering from the rush of last-minute entries for the 2004 Dead Pool, but he has managed to tabulate the top picks from the 126 participants. Go here to see the list.

For what it is worth, here is my list. Only three of my picks hit the top of the list (coincidentally, they were the first three on the list I sent to Laurence).

Politicians and spouses:

Yasir Arafat
Jimmy Carter
Ronald Reagan
Nancy Reagan
Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV)
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA)
Bulent Ecevit (former Turkish PM)
Pierre Trudeau (former Canadian PM)


Sharon Osbourne (Ozzy's wife)
Clint Eastwood
Ron Popeil (the infomercial guy)
Wilford Brimley
Bea Arthur
Mick Jagger
Martha Stewart

I tried for a mix of can't miss walking corpses and oddball choices that nobody else picked. I think that Ron Popeil and Bulent Ecevit are not likely to show up on many lists, and some of my other choices are a bit skewed as well.
