Counterintuitive Song of the Year
Regular viewers of CNBC in the past year may have noticed frequent use of the word "counterintuitive" as that's how stocks and other trends played out this year. It's been true also of the sports world. This has been a year with few safe assumptions. Likewise, my choice for song of the year may seem counter to readers' expectations:
By now everyone knows that Benazir Bhutto was murdered today in Pakistan.
I've always held Bhutto in high esteem for her courage and her capability. She took great risks to serve in the past and to return and campaign again for a better nation. She will be remembered as one of the great female leaders of our time, against whom most American and European women in office pale in comparison.
Parade magazine was scheduled to publish a Bhutto interview in early January and has chosen to publish it online today.
