Separated at Birth? Conan O'Brien & Finland President Halonen.

Conan O'Brien noticed how he looked like Finnish then presidential candidate for re-election Tarja Halonen, and so he jokingly supported her campaign:

"Why do I support Tarja Halonen? Because she's got the total package: a dynamic personality, a quick mind, and most importantly -- my good looks," the comedian, whose show is broadcast on cable in Finland, said.

Now that Halonen is re-elected, Conan is going to Finland and receive an award for "the most suprising and entertaining TV personality in Finland".

I went to Finland on business recently and my host told me about this-along with how much she likes her president-she thought it was pretty funny so I think it's okay to laugh about it Lars.
