My wife found a list in last week's Chicago Tribune Magazine, which listed some names of people whom the public currently perceives (rightly or wrongly) as incorruptible and trustworthy. The list is:
Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton (as the Trib mentions, nothing left to hide!), Walter Cronkite, the Dalai Lama, Senator Russ Feingold, Patrick Fitzgerald, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Abner Mikva, Paul Newman, Arnold Palmer, Tim Russert, Paul Volcker, and, of course, Oprah Winfrey
I just found this interesting, and I welcome any suggestions of others that should be on this list. For instance, should someone like John McCain be on such a list? Alan Greenspan? Judge Judy? Let the names begin!
