What Do Elizabeth Edwards, Oprah, Warren Buffet and Osama bin Laden Have In Common?

by Jim Geraghty

Today Time magazine will honor Elizabeth Edwards in a ceremony, naming her one of the 100 Most Influential People of the year.

She’s on the list right between Oprah and Warren Buffet, and just two notches down from Osama bin Laden. (Note to outraged liberals: Blame Time, not me. I didn’t put them in that order.)

The editors of Time might as well call it “the 100 people we would most like to write a feature article about,” because really, I just don’t buy that Tina Fey, Justin Timberlake, and Leonardo diCaprio have as much impact on the world as say, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.
