Taylor Swift, the androgynous ubiquitous marginally country pop singer is
Advertisements [?]
right up there with Sonia Sotomayor as one of the ten most influential women of the year...

She sold more than 18 million dollars worth of records so she is "influential"...

Popular, yes, Rich, pretty much, but influential...

She warbles the same tired ditty's that are churned out with frightening regularity from Nashville, dresses just a little more slutty than her sisters in country and was upstaged at an MTV event by a boorish rapper.

In this day and age, I guess, that is enough to be deemed "influential".

Influential over whom, is my question. Pop star fame is notoriously fleeting. Perhaps if she was able to mount a career longer than the last season of what ever singing competition spawned her...

I guess the good people over at MSN feel the First Lady pales in comparison to the stellar life of a teen age singer.

Now I'm not faulting the girl, she has every right to be proud of her meteoric rise to fame, but let's be honest, it really does demean the other notable women on this list.

On the male side, Michael Jackson made the list for I guess passing away. Although he did cause a media storm that "captivated" the American Media like no other event in the past few years. Perhaps influential over a callow media would be more appropriate.
