Who's hot, who's not

In a new national poll, it's Giuliani, Obama and McCain way over poor John Kerry.

Quinnipiac University is out with its latest "National Thermometer" poll, a survey in which respondents are asked to rank their feelings about individual politicians on a scale between 0 and 100, with 100 being "warm and favorable" and 0 being whatever the opposite of that is.

The top five: Rudy Giuliani, Barack Obama, John McCain, Condi Rice and Bill Clinton. The bottom five: Evan Bayh, Newt Gingrich, Bill Frist, Harry Reid and John Kerry.

The mystery man in the high middle? Joe Lieberman, checking in at No. 6, just ahead of Michael Bloomberg, John Edwards and Hillary Clinton.
