Surprise! Barbara Walters Finds Obama Most Fascinating

President-elect Barack Obama has topped Barbara Walters's list of the Most Fascinating People of 2008. The ABC special aired last night, and last year the honor of Most Fascinating Person went to Harry Potter author JK Rowling. While many people probably agree that Obama is the most fascinating figure of the year, it's somewhat surprising that his opponent John McCain did not make the list.

The complete list includes:

  1. Barack Obama
  2. Tom Cruise
  3. Sarah Palin
  4. Frank Langella
  5. Thomas Beatie
  6. Rush Limbaugh
  7. Tina Fey
  8. Miley Cyrus
  9. Michael Phelps
  10. Will Smith

Do you find the people on this list fascinating? Anyone you'd like to sub in?
