Hillary tops Time's 100 Most Influential List

Well, remember all that voting we did a while back? It paid off! Time announced their list of the Top 100 Most Influential People and Hillary made the cut. As if she wouldn't!

Time ranked her among the 100 Most Influential American Leaders. Sounds like a proper fit to me.

This is what they said about her "Sphere of Influence": 1) Ambassador Richard Holbrooke has been a long time friend an confidant. 2) Former President Clinton serves as her adviser, confidant, and sometimes liability (oh, they also forgot to mention her husband!) 3) Monynihan's retirement paved the way for her run for the Senate 4) Children's Defense Fund President Edelman has inspired Clinton since her days at Yale

Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright also had some words about Hillary:

I met Hillary Clinton in the 1980s when she spoke in Washington at the Children's Defense Fund. Already her essential public qualities — intelligence, compassion, eloquence and wit — were on display. She was also a fighter for causes that count. Whether people agreed with her or not, they learned quickly that it was worth paying attention to what she had to say.
Omg, that last line just kills me. Perfection. Read Madeleine Albright's full comments here.

I am so proud of Hillary, but if I had my way she would top the list. She always top's my list on everything. She is an inspirational, beautiful, caring, smart person. How could she not have made the list? Next year I know she will be # 1 !
