NBC’s Today Finds It ‘Surprising’ Obama Not On Fortune’s List of 50 Greatest Leaders

March 24, 2014 - 11:02 AM

From the Thursday, March 20 Today show on NBC:

Savannah Guthrie: “We are back now at 8:14 with ‘What’s Trending Today.’ And this morning, Fortune magazine is releasing its first list of the world’s 50 greatest leaders. The issue’s out tomorrow. We’re going to get an exclusive look right now at who makes the list. Bill Clinton comes in at number five and makes the cover. There are a lot of other notable names here.

“Tell you what, though, there may be some talk about one leader who did not make the list, the leader of the free world, President Obama. Fortune tells us he was not overlooked, he just did not make the cut.”

Natalie Morales: “In the top 50.”

Matt Lauer: “Yeah, that’s surprising.”
