Who Should Rule the World?
John Hawkins polled 200 conservative bloggers and asked them who should rule the world. Today, he posts the top 15 from the 38 bloggers who responded.
Here’s one interesting part: Condi is number ONE. While her boss is, well, further down the list.
Okay readers! I want to know what you think. Give us your list in the comments, or send it to me.
This is the list I sent to John:
Todd and Carol Bassett: Commanders of the Salvation Army — they do everything the Red Cross does, better, without the overhead.
Joe Gibbs: He takes a bunch of unruly guys guys, melds them into a team and turns them into Superbowl Champions. Then turns his attention to Nascar racing and wins there too. This is a man who understands organizational dynamics and using them to win. The world needs that.
Victor Davis Hansen: In order to influence the future, you need to understand history.
Margaret Thatcher: Hey, she’s still alive!
Gilbert Crouse: My dad. The wisest man I know.
Luis Palau: World-wide evangelist
S. Truett Cathy: Founder and Chairman of Chick-fil-A. An honest businessman who closes his stores on Sunday. “Nearly every moment of every day we have the opportunity to give something to someone else-our time, our love, our resources. I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return.”
Lee Scott: CEO, WalMart. #1 company in the Fortune 500. “Every day low prices.”

UPDATE: From reader Chuck Bloomer, suggestions that just beg to be posted!
My choices to rule the entire world.:
My wife, Connie — the smartest woman I know. Plus, she rules my world and does a great job of it.
Mona Charen — another smartest woman I know.
Laura Ingraham — another smartest woman I know (but haven’t actually met yet)
You — obviously smart since you have a Ph.D., plus I met you and you are a nice person.
[Wait a minute! So far my list only has women. Hmmm — gotta think of a guy.]
Sen George Allen — a tough yet personable conservative.
John Kerry — Just kidding! I threw that in there to see if you were paying attention. (Did you know he served in Viet Nam?)
Milton Friedman or Vaclav Havel, the first choice via the head the second via the heart.
That’s scary, I posted my list before checking the others. Christopher Hitchins, pro-war but still a serious socialist. Ann Coulter, very odd person and legs are too skinny. Maybe those recommendations were for the last people you would like to run the world.
