    The pregnant man was born a woman. So why is that fascinating? Most of her list is a very shallow list. Barbara Walters is more of a celebrity journalist than anything else. I’m not impressed.

    Tom Cruse? Plez. Are you sure that should not be Suri Cruise. Tom did nothing this year. Rush? Are you sure this is just a list of people Babbs wanted to talk to and would agree to talk to her.

    Obama is the most fascinating.

    Yawn. The number one is Obama. There is nothing she is going to tell about him that the public doesn’t know already.

    debra77 Says:

    Ok, I get..Tina, Michael, Miley (yuck), Sarah and maybe Rush ( the big contract)..NO take him off…

    The others on the list, where has Barbara been over the year?Tom Cruise… Will Smith (maybe him because of his blockbuster this summer), but shouldn’t she have chosen Robert Downey Jr.. He has made a full turn around in his career. From Drugs to fame.. Great story. But I don’t get Tom, Will, Frank ( I like him as an actor.. But their are millions of people who do no even know who he is)..

    Barbara needs to take a break from her list. She and the ladies on the view spent a great deal of time on politic this year. They did not focus much on entainment. Did not know really what was going one.. Thus this Sucky list..

    Oh puh-leez–Rush Limbaugh? Gag. Tom Cruise? What has he done this year to be fascinating. If any one from the Cruise fam should be on here–it should be Suri. And Frank Langella based on one movie this year?
    This woman is so out of touch.

    I agree Barack Obama or Britney Spears (maybe she should save her for next year). But pleeeease … Tom Cruise. What’s up w/ that?? I can think of many more fascinating people than that. Who’s paying here?
