Actor Kelsey Grammer has declared American President George W Bush a great leader - because he makes direct eye contact.

The Virgin Islands-born FRASIER star says the much-criticised president has all of the makings of a good leader because of the way he presents himself.

He says of Bush, "I have met him several times. He's very comfortable in his own skin, and he looks you straight in the eye. These are things that are important to me in a president. I think he's doing a great job."

And Grammer is so impressed with Bush's efforts in leading the United States, he's even offered to help out.

He adds, "I once asked him if there was anything I could do to help him out. He said, 'No, no. Maybe we could go fishing one day.' You know what? Fishing sounds great to me."
