President Bush, Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and domestic diva Martha Stewart have all made Time Magazine's list of the world's 100 most influential people.

The eclectic list, which hits newsstands Monday, ranges from the Dalai Lama to the inventors of the Blackberry, and from terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi to Nobel laureate Nelson Mandela.

Hailing from 31 different countries, and including rappers, designers, world leaders and a tsunami survivor, the listed newsmakers have shaped the world in some way, according to the magazine's editors.

"It really shows the breadth of human endeavor," Time's managing editor Jim Kelly said. "Influence can be defined in a myriad of ways."

Those named were profiled by people who have themselves been in the spotlight.

Democratic strategist James Carville discusses Karl Rove, architect of George Bush's re-election campaign; director Oliver Stone praises Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx; celebrity CEO Donald Trump weighs in on celebrity CEO Martha Stewart.

Henry Kissinger, writing about Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, says Rice is handling her job "with panache and conviction."

Sean Penn calls Clint Eastwood "cinema's Mount Rushmore." NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw calls "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart, "the citizen's surrogate" who "spoke truth to power."

Other honorees include North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, talk show host Oprah Winfrey, actress Hilary Swank and rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z.
