Bill Gates is one of the co-founders of Microsoft and one of the world's richest men. Interested in technology at an early age, Gates and his partner Paul Allen began Micro-Soft in 1975, a company which eventually became a preeminent software business. Gates has been married to his wife Melinda since 1994. He eventually left Microsoft in 2008 to devote more time to charitable work through the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, a philanthropic organization which he jointly runs with his wife.

I am so proud of our prophet. He is really worthy to be followed and emulated. Thanks for being an example in my life. I shall always heed to your teachings.

well 9 out of 10 isn't bad. Barack Obama # 1? HA!!! I don't think so. Ask the millions of poor souls standing in Obama's unemployment lines how much they admire him. Ask the 68% of Americans who say Obama has us on the WRONG track how much they admire him.

Bill Clinton - "he instigated several U.S. military missions to capture and kill Osama Bin Laden"

Of all of the reasons to mention for why someone would look up to him, this is one of the best reasons?? When it took almost another decade to actually kill Osama?

People look up to Clinton because he is a smooth talker and somehow talked his way out of getting kicked out of the oval office for the things done "under the table" both figuratively and literally. He should have been impeached for his acts with Monica, not inhaling and his purgery during the trail.

That is one crazy list.
