    Three from sports, anyone want to guess before looking? (Hint: I had to click on every single name to find all three. Annoying.)

    The writers of the bios are just as notable as the list (ie Arnold Schwarzeneggar on the British PM, Rahm Emanuel on Joe Biden, etc).

    Yeah, go ahead and guess... You'll be wrong... :)

    I would have only even considered guessing one of those three.

    I know we're all sick and tired of him, but I'm kinda surprised LeBron James isn't on this list ...

    He's not more influential than Kim Clijsters? Really?

    My guesses probably would have been LeBron, Pacquiao and maybe one of the soccer players. All of those would have been by default. I don't think any athlete right now should be anywhere near this list.

    I love that the Angry Birds creator made the list.

    So who's the third athlete? I got Clijsters and Lionel Messi, but no idea on the third ...

    Cricket's not a real sport, though.

    Our usual range from the ridiculous (Michele Bachmann) to the sublime (Patti Smith).

    They should just call it the list of 100 people we'd like to have at the party we're going to throw.

    I can't believe I got Lionel Messi. Also thought, 'Watch, it'll be some cricket guy.'

    Amy Poehler???
