Greatest People Alive Today

The Top Ten

1 Dalai Lama Dalai Lama The Dalai Lama is a monk of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" school of Tibetan Buddhism, the newest of the schools of Tibetan Buddhism founded by Je Tsongkhapa. The Dalai Lama title was created by Altan Khan (Shunyi Wang of China) in 1578. The 14th and current Dalai Lama is Tenzin Gyatso.

He is a paragon of compassion, can marry science and spirituality and works tirelessly for world peace. He also admits his own failings, what's not to love?

Seriously misguided, the less St is... I mean come on... Obama is good but on the first rank! Goes against common sense as also with Elizabeth

Because he is friend with Brian blessing making him officially the greatest man alive (after Brian blessing)

3 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney.

Currently the greatest president of the United States of the 21st century! And no, it's not George W. Bush, since that guy started our war in Iraq and stuff, which also led to the rise of ISIS that America has to deal with today! Barack Obama ended America's war in Iraq, has been trying to give affordable healthcare for everyone, was the commander in-chief who had Osama bin Laden killed under his watch, pulled us out of the Bush deficit, started peaceful diplomatic relations for America with Cuba again since the Cuban Missile Crisis, and kept our country safe from nuclear weapons from Iran with a hard bargain (Iran being able to rebuild their army may be a bad thing, but at least it's in exchange for them not nuking and ending the world). I am typing this with all my soul as Barack Obama's second and final term will end this year in 2016. I'll miss you, Barack Obama. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He is very good I hope he can be the president forever

He makes people feel meaningful
