The number one spot was not

The number one spot was not either for Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton - For the third time, Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany was declared the Forbes most powerful woman. First Ladies don't come that close – Michelle is only #40. The top American – at #2 – is FDIC Chair Sheila Bair. #3 is PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, and #54 is Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, but she's ranked lower than the other sitting female Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsberg at #48. It takes more than the best payday loan rates to get on the Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women list.
