Though election fever has died down, President George W. Bush is still tops in Ad Age's January 2001 celebrity Cover Story. With nine points, "Dubya" makes guest appearances on the covers of Biography, People and U.S. News & World Report, and double duty on Time and Newsweek in the same week, although he was sometimes relegated to a cameo role.

Politics also reign for New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, who was close with six points and takes part in ensemble covers of Biography and Esquire.

Tied for second place is Michael J. Fox, one of US Weekly's Celebrities of the Year. With Oscar buzz quickening the hearts of actors, top contenders include Julia Roberts (with 5.5 points, the star of "Erin Brockovich" showed up in Entertainment Weekly and People), Kate Hudson, Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Cover Story is Ad Age's monthly ranking of celebrities' popularity as reflected by their appearances on the covers of more than 30 of the nation's leading publications.
