Sen. Rand Paul Makes Time Cover

One of seven to be featured for annual list of 100 most influential people


The TIME 100 issue represents our choices for the 100 most influential people in the world. It's our 10th year doing it, and the cover always presents a special challenge. In some years we put all 100 of them on the cover, with a postage-stamp-size picture of each. This year we are trying something new: seven cover portraits of TIME 100 honorees who reflect the breadth and depth of our list, each one profiled inside—as is our tradition—by an equally luminary voice.
