100 Most Powerful Women

Forbes has a slide show of its picks for the 100 most powerful women in the world.

#1 is Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany and #2 is Condoleezza Rice. That lines up about right I suppose. Then we get into some women in business.

Frankly, however, if I were #17 (Michelle Bachelet, President of Chile) or #20 (Helen Clark, Prime Minister of New Zealand) I might be a little miffed to fall that far behind Brenda Barnes who runs Sara Lee and who clocks in at #9 on the list.

The woman who runs a company known for frozen desserts is more powerful that the leaders of Chile and New Zealand.

And I would be pissed if I were Hillary, as she falls in at #18.

But that might just be my male competitiveness.
