GENERAL DAVID PETRAEUS was born November 7, 1952 in New York and is a United States Army General. David Petraeus is the current International Security Assistance Force and the United States Forces in Afghanistan. David Petraeus is most known for his Humanistic approach to the fight in Afghanistan.
Unfortunately I think Barbara Walters has again disappointed me. Why is Sarah Palin on the list again she was just on last years list maybe its time to have someone new. I completely agree with Sandra Bullock and Betty White though. Hopefully next year she will pick some truly fascinating people.
