Fortune Names Taylor Swift – Not Obama – One of World's Greatest Leaders
Should President Barack Obama just “shake it off?”
Taylor Swift ranked sixth on Fortune Magazine’s second annual list of the world’s 50 greatest leaders – people who are “transforming business, government, philanthropy, and so much more.” But the president was omitted entirely from the list.
Fortune Editor Alan Murray explained why:
I voted for Barack Obama in 2008 largely because of his call to unite blue states and red states behind a politics of hope. But it hasn’t happened. At home our politics are as divided—and our federal government is as dysfunctional—as they were when he took office.
Meanwhile, Swift was placed on the list because she “has crossed swords with Spotify, embraced corporate sponsorship, and moved to secure dozens of trademarks […] plus she has proved shrewder at honing a brand in the social media age than virtually any other person or company.”
Today on “Outnumbered,” Andrea Tantaros remarked that Obama isn’t a national or global influence. Unlike Swift, Tantaros said, “he does the opposite of make money – he spends money.”
“I love Taylor Swift,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told the “Outnumbered” panel, recalling how he went to a Swift concert with his daughter (photo below).
“She’s got a good message,” he said.
