I am not sure what it takes to achieve the label of “fascinating” let alone “most fascintating.” Whatever Barbara Walter’s criteria are, Will Smith, Tina Fey, Tom Cruise, Miley Cyrus, Frank Langella, Rush Limbaugh and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps have it. They will be featured on this year’s Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People special.
However, there is another list, one that is much more fascinating. OneWorld’s People of 2008 include Pamela Adoyo at the epicenter of Kenya’s AIDS epidemic; Patricia Smith Melton who has devoted her life to voicing the unheard stories of women in all corners of the globe; the mayor of one of Portugal’s smallest and poorest municipalities who has launched one of the largest green business initiatives in the world, and others.
