The 50 Most Powerful People in D.C.
Late last month GQ Magazine released its 2009 list of the most powerful people in Washington D.C, with White House Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel in the top spot. The President, Vice-President and their families are excluded from the list, but other than that anyone is fair game. The list naturally includes many of the top politicians, including former Vice-President Dick Cheney and presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, among others, but it doesn’t limit itself. Other contenders include journalists, lawyers (including Chief Justice John Roberts, and Tom Goldstein, the founder of SCOTUSblog), a restaurateur, a hockey player, and the “unofficial stylist” of First Lady Michelle Obama. It is interesting to see who is influential, and how. Go take a look!
