Move over Osteen…

UPDATE: I thought it was funny enough that Yeshiva University President Richard Joel was nominated for MSNBC’s Boomer Hall of Fame (for Religion & Education), but get this: In fan voting, he’s leading the pack by a country mile.

You need to vote to see the up to the minute tally, but here’s the current count:

Richard Joel, Yeshiva University president – 35%

Wilton Gregory, archbishop of Atlanta – 2.3%

T.D. Jakes, minister – 2.9%

Susan Hockfield, MIT president – 6.1%

Sandy Kress, force behind No Child Left Behind – 6.6%

Joel Osteen, minister – 5.4%

Margaret Spellings, secretary of Education – 2.4%

Larry Summers, former Harvard president – 4.1%

Rick Warren, minister – 7.3%

Tom Vander Ark, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – 19%

Marianne Williamson, spiritualist – 3%

Cornell West, professor – 5.9%
