NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is "The Most Influential Man in the World," according to Esquire magazine.
The magazine has designated him as "the most powerful agent of change in the world" despite his lack of electoral standing and the fact he was laid low by a heart attack ahead of last year's presidential election.
The magazine highlights Clinton's accomplishments in its December issue, which goes on newsstands on Thursday, profiling the world's "Best and Brightest" men and women.
Since leaving office, Clinton has been so active that his post-presidency amounts to "a third term" for the Democrat who held the White House from 1992 to 2000, the magazine said. He has tackled global issues from AIDS, poverty and global warming to the recovery from last December's Indian Ocean tsunami.
Esquire editor David Granger argued that Clinton was poised to become "something like a president of the world or at least a president of the world's non-governmental organizations."
But it will mean giving up a leadership role in the Democratic party or pushing the political career of his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, seen as a 2008 White House contender.
In the article, Clinton said that he remained loyal to his party, adding: "I'm not the leader of the opposition anymore."
He looks awful on the cover. That guy is on the fast track to looking like he is in his early 80s. Maybe too many Big Macs.
Stupid is as stupid does...
I think Tammy Bruce said it best. Clinton spent more time trying to get Monica on her knees than bin Laden on his.
The only thing the scumbag has tackled are unsuspecting females so that he can molest them.
This is a completely transparent hack article to tout Clinton as the next UN secretary general.
I actually have this issue,
somone gave me the script for free
some of the writing is decent but the editorial posturing is very left and quite HOMO
which is odd considering Esquire was once a fav of hetero rakes
LOL... Since the Sink Emperor has "tackled" these global issues I guess that's four things we don't have to worry about any more.
Now compare bj's legacy with Reagan's.
Weird and pathetic. Clinton was a so-so president who's probably tied with Lyndon Johnson for the most corrupt man to ever hold the office. Edge to Clinton in the corruption department since he was in the pay of the Red Chinese military, a treason Johnson would never have committed.
These same liberals continue to apologize for or justify the mass murder of their heroes, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. How can we expect anything more of them?
Esquire has to be kidding. Instead, they should he and his wife "Couple Who So Far Have Espcaped Deserved Jail Terms."
"He has tackled global issues from AIDS, poverty and global warming to the recovery from last December's Indian Ocean tsunami"
No mention of him tackling interns?
Talk about Stuck On Stupid!
Have they been polling brothels the world over?
He should thank President Bush for the opportunity...BARF.
Now if Mad magazine gives Willie their "Most Influential Man Of the Year" award, he will have the two big ones in the bag.
In Esquire's wildest dreams...perhaps!
Ijn the real worlld, NO!
