Fortune’s Top Leader List: Taylor Swift but No President Obama

Fortune has released their pick of the top 50 leaders of the world where Taylor Swift is on, but President Obama is no where to be found.

In 2009 Obama may have won a Nobel Peace Prize, with basicly doing nothing but being elected to prove worthy for this prestigious award but fast forward to 2015, and he dosen’t even make the cut of Fortune’s list of top leaders and hes the two term President of the United States.

Taylor Swift ranks at an amazing #6 while Jimmy Fallon even makes the cut at #45.

Maybe with President Obama’s continued failed policies and constant contradictions in his actions, its just not enough to be a place holder in the Oval Office to be considered a Leader.
