Arne Duncan and Country Singer Taylor Swift Make Same 'Tops' List


U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan made Rolling Stone's list of the 100 People Who Are Changing America.

He rang in at No. 98, edging out country pop star Taylor Swift, who was No. 100.

Who beat Duncan? Cleveland Cavaliers' star LeBron James at No. 52. (Duncan, a basketball player himself, is probably okay with this.) Comedian Will Ferrell came in at No. 38. The new energy secretary is apparently the "change-iest" in Obama's cabinet—Steven Chu came it at 24.

And No. 1?

Barack Obama, of course.
