The best dressed vice-president

In my post about royalty and the dilema of titles, I didn't bother to mention that Queen Rania was accompanied by a Sudanese government delegation. I didn't pay them too much mind, but one guy really stuck out. He came into the auditorium with the queen, sporting a casual jacket and like a small cowboy hat. I thought, "whoa, this guys looks like some kind of blues player straight from the Missisippi delta."

Turns out he's the Salva Kiir, former right hand man to John Garang and military leader of the SPLA. He replaced Garang as Sudan's Vice President after Garang died in a helicopter crash.

So he gets my vote for the most hip Vice President. Here he is.
