Britain’s self-proclaimed #1 quality newspaper, The Telegraph, released their annual list of the most influential liberal and conservative persons in American. To be considered for the list, the person must both live and work in the United States. This year’s liberal list includes Congressman Artur Davis (#89); the conservative list includes Birmingham native Condoleezza Rice (#12) and current presidential candidate (and Muscle Schoals native) Fred Thompson (#54).

Stateside accounts of the listings have been quite interesting, including these two stories from The Tuscaloosa News and here in Alabama.

Davis, Rice, among most influential Americans, British paper says, The Tuscaloosa News, 11.2.2007

State claims 3 on influential list,, 11.4.2007
