OK, she's a dark horse. Her resume can't match some of the other candidates. But you gotta admit, Angelina Jolie would be, hands down, the best-looking CIA director of all time. And it's not like she doesn't have chops. Although she played a Russian, she showed plenty of moxy and fight as agent Evelyn Salt in "Salt." And no one who saw her as Lara Croft in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" and "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" would doubt her ability to come out on top against all odds. She deserves a look if only to see what she would wear to those White House state dinners. Above: Angelina Jolie in "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life."
