The Most Powerful Women

Forbes is out with their latest list of the world’s most powerful women. Here’s a look at the top 5:

1. Condoleezza Rice, U.S. Secretary of state

2. Wu Y, China, Vice Premier, Minister of Health

3. Yulia Tymoshenko, Ukraine, Prime Minister

4. Gloria Arroyo, Philippines, President

5. Meg Whitman, CEO, Ebay*

Here’s the question: What is more immediately surreal about this list?

That the head of an online flea market ranks this high, or that Oprah’s not on it.

Anyway, stay tuned for next year’s list…

*It seems to me that the fifth most powerful woman in the world would be able to do something to stop all of those damn phishing emails I get from spammers pretending to be PayPal.

Concentration is important!
