2012’s Most Influential Man? James Bond
It's not a real man who's been named the most influential man of the year. No, it's fictional international spy James Bond who tops Askmen.com's poll of the most influential men of 2012.
Wouldn't it be nice if James Bond were real? Think of how easily he could get rid of so many problems in the world! By the way, the newest Bond film, 'Skyfall' comes out next month and this is the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film. Anyway, the poll, which ran for a month, doesn't have any other fictional spies in the top five. Olympic champion Usain Bolt was second and Bill Clinton, Seth MacFarlane and Joseph Gordon-Levitt round out the rest of the top five. I was curious how the President and Mitt Romney did in the poll, since you'd think the President would be the most influential man. Not even close. Obama missed the top ten, coming in at 11th and Romney placed 24th. Another fictional man did pretty well on the poll too. Christian Grey, of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was 13th. Who would you choose as the most influential man of the year?
