Powerful is not synonymous with rich or even with influential. Power has to do with your actual ability to get things done, in which case Condi Rice defintely belongs where she is, and Madonna and J.K. Rowling are in a different world. They may be well known but they hardly have the ability to actually change things.

David J. Montgomery

Condoleeza Rice wields HUGE influence, without a doubt. She should, too: that's one heckuva woman.

Suggesting that Madonna belongs on a list like that ranks somewhere between "Sub-moronic" and "Completely idiotic." She was only modestly important (never powerful) 15 years ago. Today she's a relic.


Very thought provoking.

While I don't much care for her or her brand of politics, Condoleeza Rice most certainly is ONE of the most powerful women...I am not sure if she is THE most powerful woman.

Madonna? Passe.

JK Rowling? Yes. Most powerful? No. Although anything she writes would go immediately to No. 1 without question and without release.

I think Hillary is infintely more powerful than Laura but Laura should be on the list as well.

Queen Elizabeth?

Paris Hilton?

Lisa Simpson?
