Obama and Clinton for 2008.
A bit off compared to the actual full heads&shoulders billboard photograph -- the ears are more Obama prominent, and the sunglasses and hair flip is more Hillary obvious on the roadside&bus billboards -- but that was the closest I could find on the Web.

Yep, but the shooting angle of the photograph on the roadside and bus billboards make Washington's ears appear MUCH more prominent, which is the first thing political cartoonists exaggerate in creating an Obama caricature.
Crowe is phographed in 3/4 profile toward Washington which accentuates the hair part and hairflip ala Hillary. The aviator sunglasses (which Hillary has also been photographed wearing) masks the strongest differences between the two faces. I'm not sure, but I think Crowe is also wearing the '70s-style b-r-o-a-d collared mens business shirt that we now associate with professional womens wear.

wait, I'm still confused how that link has anything to do with presidential campaign posters...

I think the issue is, have you ever seen Denzel and Obama in a room together? Crowe and Hillary?
