PRO: An erudite, multilingual author of seven books, Prince Hassan brings originality and straight talk to political discourse in the Middle East. He is a leading thinker on what it means to be a Muslim in a global community and has dedicated himself to bridging the growing divide between the Islamic world and the West.
CON: He isn't King. And since he's a particularly liberal thinker from a country regarded with suspicion across the Mideast for its close ties to the U.S., his ideas probably don't appeal much to his primary audience.
