This year’s Time 100 list is perhaps the most intriguing one. Award honors 100 men and women who define our times The annual list celebrates the lives and ideas of the world’s most influential people The time 100 is now a much anticipated annual issue, in its third year, and since we view anyone who makes the list as being permanent member of the Time 100, we have very few repeats each year. U.S. President George W. Bush is one, as is Kartie Couric. Bill Clinton is back, this time paired with George H.W. Bush; Bill Gates is back too, this time with wife Melinda. Another person who makes a return visit this year is U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
The awards were presented during a New York City Gala Dinner. Distinguished guests included US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, Queen Rania of Jordan, US Senator John McCain, Actor Will Smith, and Producer George Lucas. “We live in an interconnected and global village, a place where people you might not have heard about, as well as those you have, are influencing the way we live in the 21st century,” said Managing Editor of Time, James Kelly.
