Not only does the president appear nowhere in Fortune columnist Geoff Colvin‘s list of the world’s 50 greatest leaders, but the last Democratic president both appears at No. 5 and serves as the subject of the magazine’s cover photo.
Other politicians not named Barack Obama who make the Fortune list include German Chancellor Angela Merkel (No. 2 behind Pope Francis); Jakarta, Indonesia, governor Joko Widodo (No. 37); Barcelona Mayor Xavier Trias (No. 46); and U.S. District Court Judge Jed Rakoff (No. 50).
