Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks during the Women in Public Service Project leadership symposium at Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, Pa, on July 9, 2013.

Barbara Walters ticked down her list of “10 Most Fascinating People of 2013″ on Wednesday night’s TV special, unveiling Hillary Clinton as the most fascinating of all.

Runners up included Edward Snowden, the royal baby, Miley Cyrus and an exotic two-headed figure known as “Kimye” (short for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). Clinton topped the list amid widespread speculation of a presidential run in 2016. “It’s such a difficult decision,” Clinton told Walters during the interview, “and it’s one that I’m not going to rush into.” She predicted she will make a decision by “sometime next year.”

Bill Clinton laughed when Walters asked what a presidential win would make him. “First mate,” he suggested. “I don’t know.”

I am fascinated by Hilary. How can someone so evil be praised by the left. Anyone else caught celebrating the death of someone and brushing off the death of Americans is not fascinating she is evil.

People were killed due to the incompetence of Hillary Clinton and others in the Administration.  Ambassador Steven's was the equivalent rank of a Three Star General, he was tortured and then murdered by Terrorists.  Never  has such a high ranking member of the US Government been left to die at the hands of terrorists.  In spite of numerous warnings, and direct plea's from Ambassador Stevens the State Department left Benghazi without even basic security.  No rapid response teams were on alert, none of the basic security guidelines were followed.  Yet, Hillary is the most Interesting Person in the World to liberals.  


Her incompetence. arrogance, and lack of concern for the dead at Benghazi speaks volumes as to her political ambitions.  She is devoid of any feelings for the dead or their families.  She lied to to the relatives and rest of America for weeks, knowing NO Video, or spontaneous Mobs were involved in the Massacre.  Leave it to Barbara Walters to help cover up for Hillary.  This is where Journalism ends and the sick self serving bias of our liberal media comes to play.  Save Hillary at all costs.  Disgusting!

Of course shes a women and wants to see a women in DC before she dies. Doesn't have any common sense about all this lying this bitch cliton has done, all the cover ups of the murders of are troops. I think she's giving obummer hummers in the white house. Anyone with an ounce of gray matter can see this idiot for what she is.

I am not surprised at the media's promotion of a potential democratic candidate for President. However, it is the heightened importance of the "celebrity" status over the substantive issues that matter for a potential Presidential candidate that is discouraging. There was no discussion of Ms Clinton's disastrous service as head of State Dept. (what about benghazi, n. korea, iran, arab spring, isreal/palestine, russia, etc.) Is she above that? However, I suppose focusing on her celebrity status is preferred to focusing on Obama's messiah status...

Hillary Clinton relieved General Hamm of his command for attempting to go in to save the men trapped and abandoned by her in Benghazi. She not only did nothing while the men in trouble were begging for help but she also made sure no one could help them.

Hillary!!! Really? Don't know why I even watched the show Barbara sucks. What the hell did Hillary even do besides kill American soldiers!! I feel like the whole show was just a push to get Hillary to run for president. GOD help us if she does. I'm a female voter but I would never vote for a woman for president just because she's a woman. Like obama voted in by the blacks just because he was black. Hows that working?  Hillary your time is not now. Your time is not ever! If you didn't steel enough white house china the first time to bad.

Yesterday the president hosted a White House luncheon honoring 11-month-old transgender Hillary Carter. I would think Barbra would choose that Hillary over the opportunistic former first lady. http://bit.ly/1hZF2M6

Really Barbara Walters you are not a journalist you are promoting Hillary Clinton to be President. Barbara Walters is a disgrace to journalism she is so one sided her whole life I am glad that this is the last most fascinating Person of the Year. 21 years of b*******retire and get another facelIft !!! Pope Francis 5 far was the most fascinating person and I am not religious.

I don't see how anyone other than Pope Francis could be the choice. When the new Pope has even atheists singing his praises, THAT person has got the world's attention. I think he's a pivotal figure in history. If Hillary wins in 2016, THEN I'd say she was the most fascinating figure in 2016 for being the first female president.

@RecklessProcessHey clown you want a real crime. Look up on why GWB redacted 28 pages of a congressional report showing that the Saudis financed and helped the 9/11 attackers. And then helped many of the people who did it leave the  country.

Where do you crazy people come up with your crazy ideas?

Since when can the Secretary of State fire a general?

You people waving the bloody shirts of these dead Americans for vile political gain is in vain and it's the very lowest form of political hackery.

@LazyLana is this for real, What person in there right mind could possibly believe a six month old baby could possibly want to change its sex, could look down at his penis in disgust, If this is true and his parents had him changed they should be SHOT or maybe forced to have a sex change themselves. and obummer welcoming them to the white house, give me a break he's the most despicable president we have ever had.

@timlhowe You are correct that the Sec State cannot relieve a general. 


However, since when it is 'political hackery' for the purposes of 'vile political gain' to ask tough questions of our elected and top appointed officials? I suppose it was 'patriotism is the highest form of dissent' when leading Democrat politicians and commentators did it during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars?

timlhowe: take a chill pill with your koolaid and call your psychiatrist to get that mental health appointment that's now covered by Ovomitcare.  You've got a bad case of  i've-got-my-head-up-Killary's-a$$.

@AlainDeWitt@timlhowe 

The Iraq war was based on a lie, the Afghanistan war was horribly mismanaged. Benghazi was a CIA operation gone bad. By the time the attacks happened nothing could have been done to save the first two men. The second two men could only have been saved by creating a cordon big enough to keep them out of mortar range. This would have taken hundreds of men(which we didn't have available) each of which would have made an even better target as they traveled on foot at night in a hostile urban space.
