Power, Pop-Queens and Pelosi

  1. Michelle Obama
  2. Irene Rosenfeld
  3. Oprah Winfrey
  4. Angela Merkel
  5. Hillary Clinton
  6. Indra Nooyi
  7. Lady Gaga
  8. Gail Kelly
  9. Beyonce Knowles
  10. Ellen Degeneres
  11. Nancy Pelosi

What a joke the Forbes "100 Most Powerful Women" list is. Nancy Pelosi, Madam Speaker, is not even in the top 10. I understand how she is behind Angela Merkel, a leader of a powerful western European nation. I can even see Oprah being in the Top 10. She has turned mediocre talented people into TV-stars and obsure writers onto Best-sellers.

It's not that Pelosi didn't make the Top 10, but it was who was put ahead of her that is so laughable to the point where I can't take this list seriously. A comedian and a couple of pop-queen sensations put together and raised to the tenth power don't have the power that the Speaker of the House has in one pinky.

The List
