What’s Jeff Bezo anyway?
Jeff Bezo is an American businessman, media owner, computer engineer, and entrepreneur. He is the current founder and CEO of Amazon, in which he also served as the president and COO from 1994 until 2004. Jeff started his online business with an auction service called Lockerz, and it later evolved into one of the biggest online stores in the world. In 1995, Jeff and wife Evelyn purchased a stake in CompuShred, which was an online lending company that allowed users to purchase goods using credit cards. As CompuShred grew in popularity, Jeff and Evelyn sold their stake in the company to Microsoft Corporation, which released the Windows operating system on the PC platform.
With the advent of the internet, Jeff Bezo has used his CompuShred business to launch an extensive range of online ventures including an e-commerce store, an online marketplace, and an information products empire. It is interesting to note that even though Jeff Bezo is one of the most successful e-commerce entrepreneurs in the world, his net worth is relatively low compared to some of the other people who feature on this list. The reason for this is that despite being so well-known, Jeff Bezo is not actually very rich. His net worth is more the result of his business acumen, marketing savvy, sales experience, and networking contacts rather than necessarily due to his wealth.

Bill Gates was another Who is Jeff Bezo Rich List member who is famous for creating one of the most widely used software programs in the world, the Windows. He is also worth an estimated sixty six million dollars. However, according to some reports, he only earned eleven million dollars during the year end of 2007.

Yet another member of the Who is Jeff Bezo Rich List is New Mexico Governor, candidate for president, and former drug lord, John Aguada. He is currently under investigation for corruption. He has served two terms as governor of New Mexico. He previously served two terms as mayor of Albuquerque. Although he hasn’t been charged with any charges relating to grafting or taking money in exchange for government services, his popularity has taken a huge hit and is now at an all time low. Many political pundits and others are speculating that he may not even make it to the runoff in November of 2009.
One of the newest additions to Who is Jeff Bezo Rich List is Albuquerque Attorney, and candidate for governor, Russell Wilson. Wilson is a rising star in the legal profession and has earned several honors including the Alton Brown Award for distinguished public service, given by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. However, he has already garnered plenty of criticism because he failed to disclose a personal bankruptcy in his application to become attorney general. A candidate cannot be considered “disqualified” if he fails to disclose a bankruptcy unless it is brought up in a campaign for just cause. The New Mexico State Supreme Court has ruled that this rule of thumb should apply to all candidates seeking appointment to the state’s highest court.
Another member of Who is Jeff Bezo, who is seeking to be the next governor of New Mexico, is Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, Jeannette Rankin. Ms. Rankin is already well known as an abortion advocate, having inserted a plank in the party’s platform advocating the reduction of all abortions in the United States. She is also pro-life. If elected governor she will become the first woman governor of New Mexico since women gained the right to vote in 1994.
Of course, these are only a sampling of those who would be included on Who is Jeff Bezo Rich List. Among other things, the list would also include ex- Representatives Barney Frank, John Edwards, Tom Coburn, Saxby Chambliss, Richard Shelby, Trent Lott, George Allen, Rick Perry, Tom Delay, George wormer and John Bolton. Perhaps even future VP candidates including John Edwards, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Elizabeth Cheney, VP picks for cabinet, along with a whole host of political pundits and personality cults. One must ask, who is this guy for a serious presidential ticket? He certainly has the credentials and the personal life to make him the Vice Presidential Candidate of the United States of America and I hope he wins.
