POWERFUL WOMEN….I don’t really have any trenchant commentary to add to this, but I thought I’d post the top 20 entries from Forbes’ latest list of the most powerful women in the world. Condi Rice has been demoted to #2 after a two-year reign at the top, and Oprah Winfrey continues to be more important than both the president of Chile and the prime minister of New Zealand. Katie Couric comes in at a dismal #54. Americans make up the vast majority of the top 20, but other countries get a bit more recognition as you go further down the list. Queen Elizabeth’s occupation, perplexingly, is listed as NA. She’s a queen, isn’t she?
