<And today, a new bell-capped Fool debuts on the Motley Fool home page: none other than Donald "The Elvis" Trump. :) Cool!>

Newsweek had an interesting article this week on the Donald--suggesting his political campaign could be a ruse to simply pump up his business interests. Somehow (and I'm occasionally fooled) I think he is sincere, though.
Interesting tidbits:
The Donald says he doesn't relate to having an ego.
His favorite book: 'The art of the Deal' (by D. Trump)
He calls shaking hands a 'barbaric custom'--and notes that some people want to shake his hand after using the bathroom (nobody in the Fool community, however).
Having the Donald underneath a jester cap was cool. But my first celebrity choice would be.......Elton John. If Elton became a Fool, maybe we would finally get that 'Donkey Castle' message group I've been harping about (within the Managing your Finances folder). There's alot of people stuggling with maintaining those things.
