The most powerful people in the world (2) – Answers


You tried ’em, you guessed’em, and one of you got it right first!

Young lawyer Marcelo Sarsur, from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, named first and correctly all 12 people depicted in our earlier post, and he gets a first-class ticket to Air Force Obama! Congrats =)

Here’s what he told us:

Gates, Chu, Rice, Gibbs, Jones, Obama, Clinton, Holder, Geithner, LaHood, Emanuel and Napolitano. There!

A few minutes later, Vinicius Tavares, also from Belo Horizonte, tried, but he got one wrong:

1- Robert Gates
2- Steven Chu
3- Susan Rice
4- Robert Gibbs
5- James L. Jones
6- Barack Obama
7- Hillary Clinton
8- Eric Holder
9- Tom Daschle
10- Ray LaHood
11- Rahm Emanuel
12- Janet Napolitano

Number 9 (first in the third row) is not Daschle. It’s Timothy Geithner, soon-to-be Treasury Secretary (that’s a lot of “y”s in a same sentence, I bet mineiros like that).

Even the President-elect couldn’t manage the task!

Holy Christ! Only one missing!

That’s a comment by Pedro Nogueira, who will play the title role.

As for me, well… I can’t stop thinking James L. Jones is an awfully similar name to James Earl Jones

Imagine having Darth Vader for National Security Advisor!

  1. Congratulations to y’all! I spent almost two days trying to discover who the hell was the #4: Robert Gibbs, but I couldn’t do it in time. Congratulations, Sarsur! Welcome aboard!

  2. Thank you, thank you. As for Anakin Skywalker as SoD, just picture him talking to Tony Stark, after the demonstration of the Jericho missile: “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you created. The ability to destroy a planet is nothing next to the power of the Force.”
