Last week’s discovery of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi‘s secret scrapbook of Condoleezza Rice got me thinking…is every despot motivated by intense feelings about some impossible love object? If so, might we somehow use this love to get them to stop doing terrible things? Maybe all Osama Bin Laden really needed was a hug from Whitney Houston. It was with this in mind that I compiled this list of evil dictators and my best guesses as to whom their secret crushes might be/have been. You know, for the good of humanity.
