It's not surprising that presidents are often Leos!
One of your sign's most important qualities is your ability to lead. Perhaps it's no secret that former President Barack Obama is a Leo native. From his historic election in 2008 to his triumph over challenger (Pisces) Mitt Romney in 2012, he's was a polarizing but effective president.
In typical Leo fashion, he hobnobbed with Hollywood celebrities like Matt Damon and George Clooney, while trying to find ways to share American's enormous wealth more equally.
Perhaps Obama will be most remembered for this ability to lead people through communication. His inspirational speeches have led young people in particular to register to vote in unprecedented numbers.
