    For 15 years Vanity Fair has released its annual “V.F. 100” – their list of the new leaders in the information age.

    Several political types have made the list – although there was one notable name missing: President-elect Obama.

    This is the kind of tripe that the press publishes to try to take American minds off their real problems. Politicians love it also. Who really cares about Brad Pitt, etc.???

    easy to say, but holds no truth in the real world. the fact is stars hold a lot of power in the real world. look at people, imitate famous people, why do you think theres' always some star testifying in congress about something, remember the apples and alar(sp?) in the 80's, anything about nature and abuse of it, or stuff they just plain don't like,etc. when they speak people listen, for some reason people think they(stars) KNOW something, their ecperts or soemthing. Thats why you see them in tv commercials, magazine ads. so like it or not, yes stars have power in the world, and a lot of people care what they think. which is pitiful, but true.

    Yep, you are right and it shows how shallow so many people are. In their personal lives many actors/actresses are what we should point out as how not to live your life.

    We could also edit that to say- "In their personal lives many politicians are what we should point out as how not to live your life."

    And kindly take that there as a non-partisan sentiment.

    I see Al (Global Warming) Gore is in the top ten and Bill Clinton is number 11 but I don't see Bush anywhere. Obama is just starting to get onto the stage.

    American's will never get over their fascination with celebrity. I recall watching Anne Heche on TV on September 10, 2001, being interviewed about how aliens talked to her. The next morning, we all had bigger fish to fry.

    I have to wonder why you quoted me, as your response has nothing to do with anything I said.
    We've already determined the list is meaningless, and wishy washy by listing people like bratt pitt and angelina jolie proves it. so gore and clinton are on the meaninless wishy washy list and obama is an up and coming on the meaningless and wishy washy list. and your point is?
