Yaaaaay Johanna Sigurdardottir

A bit late but better than never, a shout-out to the new Prime Minister of Iceland (interim), Ms Johanna Sigurdadottir. She is part of the Social Democrat Alliance so after the elections will lose the job since the party is not expected to win a majority. For now she takes the lead, as the country struggles to deal with the repercussions of the collapse of its banking system. While Iceland has had a woman president before, Sigurdardottir will be the first female Prime Minister. O yeah, she lives with her civil partner Jonina Leosdottir, and has two children from a previous marriage. That would make her the first openly gay leader of the modern world :-)
