Most Influential Living Americans

Same magazine that compiled the previous list. This list was also compiled in December 2006.

This is a list of the most Influential Americans that are still living.
  1. Bill Gates (#54 on the Top 100 - see previous list)
  2. James D. Watson (#68)
  3. Ralph Nader (#96)
  4. Bob Dylan
  5. Steve Jobs
  6. Steven Spielberg
  7. William F. Buckley Jr. (Who is actually dead but as I said, it was compiled in 2006)
  8. Muhammad Ali
  9. Sandra Day O'Connor
  10. Opray Winfrey


  1. lol... Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are probably more influential than the top 5 on that list... combined. But since they are not even on the list... shows how biased the list is.

  2. I think it was only including GOOD influences.


  3. Yeah I know. The list was compiled in 2006.

  4. WFB: too mad he didn't die a long, long time ago.

  5. Was that comment really necessary Danny? It is one thing to disagree with someone’s politics, philosophies, or stances on issues, but it is another thing entirely to wish them dead. That is just tasteless.
