Smithsonian Names Governor Sarah Palin One of the Most Significant Americans of All Time


By Gary P Jackson

In a special edition of Smithsonian Magazine the editors list the 100 most historically significant Americans of all time. The list is based on information gathered for them by Steve Skiena and Charles Ward,the authors of the book Who’s Bigger?: Where Historical Figures Really Rank, which lists the most significant men and women in history, world wide.

For Smithsonian’s purposes, the most significant Americans of all time are placed in various categories.

Governor Palin is listed among top women:

Eleanor Roosevelt
Hillary Clinton
Sarah Palin
Martha Washington
Hellen Keller
Sojourner Truth
Jane Addams
Edith Wharton
Bette Davis
Oprah Winfrey

Most significant Presidents are listed as well:

Abraham Lincoln
George Washington
Thomas Jefferson
Theodore Roosevelt
Ulysses S. Grant
Ronald W. Reagan
George W. Bush

Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Woodrow Wilson
James Madison
Andrew Jackson

One should note that neither Barack Obama or Bill Clinton made the list.

The methodology used to determine who made the list is fascinating. Read the entire article here.

    I bought myself a copy of the magazine issue Tuesday. What really would eat at their craw is if The Smithsonian Magazine would give Sarah Palin The Editor’s Choice Award. DARN, She didn’t get it.

    I Stand with Sarah Palin!!!

      Yeah the democrats were spewing more hate then usual over this on the Smithsonian website. Hate and stupid is all they have Jim!

      I’m looking back. I don’t think there has been a year since 2008 that Governor Palin hasn’t won a significant award of some kind.
