Esquire depicts the Speaker as one tough cookie, describing her as “the most powerful woman in the world— who “doesn’t particularly need anyone to love her. … She simply wants to win.— Several other political bigwigs are named to the list, too, including President Barack Obama, former/maybe future California Gov. Jerry Brown, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, the next Supreme Court justice (whomever that may be) and former Illinois Gov. Rod Balgojevich (the article features Blago’s now-infamous “I’m blacker than Barack Obama— quote).Remixed Regrets.
