    I understand the concept of, "THE MOST POWERFUL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD!" If we believe this, then we are genuinely knuckeling under to the will of others. I however believe that we, as individuals, are the most powerful people in the world. Barack Obama can not make you stop smoking, or help you give up fatty foods, only you can do that. The power is within us, and the perception that we are ruled, is only concept created by our need to belong to a group. Like ants...we follow the group with the biggest hive I guess. No matter who tells you how meaningless you are ...always remember, you are the most powerful person in the world. You control your own destiny.

    The most powerful person in the world, whether people want to believie it or not, is Jesus Christ. Always has been, is now and always will be.
    I would have to take another look at our president being #2 after the shalacking (his words) he took Tuesday. This tells me he is doing something wrong for the american people.

    I believe the gift from Treasury was wrong. The jobs are gone, they are in Mexico or overseas and are not coming back. The only way the jobs will come back is for Congress to revoke the tax deduction for big business to send the jobs oversseas, and then add an additional tax for the jobs that stay overseas, plus an import tax on all goods that are brought back for all goods that are made overseas that was done by U.S. Labor. This should go back no less than 15 years and include the textile industry.

    Ali Velshi's little segment on the most powerful people in the world was idiotic.
    How could anyone think that Oprah or Mark Zuckerberg are more powerful than Hi Jintao or Barcak Obama the later two being world leaders of the biggest economies in the world.

    As a matter of fact all of the top ten were either world leaders or people who control an economy.

    I understand how people love Oprah but since when does an entertainer who regularly dispenses wrong information on national television count as one of the most powerful people in the world.

    In addition the creator of a social network that works, but not that well is another stupid choice.

    I think it's time that the media began to champion a person because they are truly smart and not out purely for their own wealth.
    (a mind and heart above the rest if you will)
    not just popular icons of a digital or media driven world.
