NEW YORK—Their hearts pounding, the world’s leading figures in politics, entertainment, business, and technology reportedly crowded around a sheet of paper tacked to Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs’ office door Thursday, in hopes of seeing their names on the magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list. “Oh my God, I made it!” shrieked Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen before sharing a tearful celebratory hug with actor Matthew McConaughey and Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, both of whom had also made the cut. “I just knew that if I gave it my all and kept the federal funds rate near zero, good things would happen. I’m still shaking!” At press time, an inconsolable Katie Couric was standing off to the side and talking to her mother on the phone.
