1. Rush Limbaugh - Newsweek

According to Newsweek, the most influential political figures are generally the ones who make the most money peddling their perspectives. Accordingly, the magazine compiled a list of the 50 highest-earning political figures of 2010. Included in the rankings are politicians, ex-politicians, media personalities, and political consultants who hawk their personal brands in the public marketplace—and influence American political discourse in the process.

Here's a quick look at spots number 1 to 10:
#1 Rush Limbaugh, #2 Glenn Beck ($33 million), #3 Sean Hannity ($22 million), #4 Bill O'Reilly ($20 million), #5 Jon Stewart ($15 million), #6 Sarah Palin ($14 million), #7 Don Imus ($11 million), #8 Bill Clinton ($7.7 million), #9 Kieth Olbermann ($7.5 million) and #10 Rudy Giuliani ($7 million).
Just a point of information, Former President George W. Bush ranked # 18 with $4.2 million and President Obama came in at #20 with $4 million.

Remember to follow the money when listening to all these influential personalities. There's a way to make money and each one has found his niche. Sell books, give lectures, create controversy, get media time- it'll fill your coffers.
