A Head of State blogging?

Thanks to Slugger O'Toole for bringing to attention the latest politician to join the blogosphere - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran. I am hard pressed to think of another Head of State who blogs, but if Hugo Chavez can have a regular chat show (so did Harold Wilson, albeit after he left office) then why not a blogging President?

Ahmadinejad's blog is multilingual, handling Farsi, Arabic, English and French, but be warned there are some technical problems in the English version at least. And the French version doesn't seem to be working at all. Still it's good to see leaders at the very highest levels using the internet to speak to the world and explain themselves. Now will Dubya or His Toniness deem to talk to the common folk?
