TIME Magazine Releases List of 100 Most Influential People
A few weeks ago, TIME Magazine revealed the names it was considering for its annual list of the '100 Most Influential People in the World.' Reader votes determined one person, while the rest were selected by the magazine's editors.
And now the final list -- which includes athletes, actors, entrepreneurs and politicians -- is out. So who made the cut?
Not surprisingly, President Barack Obama is among the honorees, as is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and presumed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
But if that's all too serious for you, plenty of funny people made the list too, with 'Bridesmaids' and 'Saturday Night Live' star Kristen Wiig, comedian Louis CK, and 'Colbert Report' host Stephen Colbert all making an appearance.
TIME's roundup also had athletes like New York Knicks' phenom Jeremy Lin and football player and cultural icon Tim Tebow, singers including Adele and Rihanna, and tech luminaries, such as innovator and venture capitalist Marc Andreessen and social media news guru Pete Cashmore.
