Billy Graham 24) Oprah Winfrey 25) Steven Spielberg (CNN) -- The world of politics is home to some of the most fascinating people of the last quarter-century, according to a Top 25 list compiled by CNN and editors at Time magazine. President Bush, ranked No. 4 on the list, entered the White House for the first of his two-term tenure in the wake of the bitterly contested 2000 election. Shortly thereafter, he led the nation through the September 11 attacks and subsequent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "He embraced an idea in foreign policy, the notion of a pre-emptive war and the possibility that that war can spread democracy in a region," said Priscilla Painton, executive editor at Time. "Over the objections of many people, he pushed that idea forward in ways history will judge. But where historians won't disagree is accessing the boldness of that idea." http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/05/02/CNN25.top.fascinating/ If URL does not work, go to www.cnn.com.
