by Fred Showker

Fred Showker's favorite Wall Calendars are FREE Each year we all get a great kick out of Time Magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world. THis year, the issue features seven separate covers, each featuring a member of the TIME 100. I always love the images and photos, and I always love to hear what one is saying about the other. So, thanks to Time Magazine, I have permission to share the following highlights From TIME 100 PROFILES.

Note : at the end of EACH is an askerisk link to that passage in the web site

Barack Obama, by Hillary Clinton:

Quoting  begins When Barack Obama was first elected, the world saw the realization of the American Dream. Today, they see a leader who delivers—whether it’s ending the war in Iraq, imposing crippling sanctions on Iran or reasserting our role as a Pacific power and building a world with more partners and fewer enemies. *Quoting  ends

Tom Coburn, by Barack Obama:

Quoting  begins After I took office, Tom received dozens of letters from Oklahomans complaining that we looked too close on TV. Tom’s response was 'How better to influence somebody than to love them?' Each of us still hopes the other will see the light. But in the meantime, we’ll settle for being friends." * Quoting  ends

Jimmy Fallon, by Justin Timberlake:

Quoting  begins Picture this: I’m in the heart of an impromptu speech at my wedding reception in front of 150 guests, pouring it out to my lovely new bride. You could hear a pin drop. I paused for just a moment in between thoughts. And then there was Jimmy, shouting a joke from his seat, sparking an improv ­between the two of us that went on for a good five or 10 minutes and had all our guests roaring with laughter…. It turned into a moment that everyone there will remember forever. Anyone else would have bombed on that stage. And then I would have kicked their ass. *Quoting  ends

Shonda Rhimes, by Oprah Winfrey:

Quoting  begins Shonda is a story­teller for our times. ­Courageous in her approach to the work, she’s never played by other people’s rules -- She creates an assemblage of worldly foibles and aspirations. She understands that every dream is valuable and every identity deserves inspection through the looking glass of television. *Quoting  ends

Rand Paul, by Sarah Palin::

Quoting  begins Senator Rand Paul is a voice of reason awakening the public to what must be done to restore our prosperity and preserve the blessings of liberty for future generations -- I sent him some caribou jerky from Alaska to help keep up his strength on the Senate floor. There’s more where that came from for this bold Senator with 20/20 vision willing to take a stand for liberty. *Quoting  ends

Joe Biden, by Eric Cantor:

Quoting  begins His list of accomplishments is impressive, but most impressive to me is his ability to build bridges, bring people together and get things done…. Working closely with him during the 2011 debt-ceiling debate, I experienced this firsthand. Since then, the Vice President has become a friend. *Quoting  ends
