The Top Five Most Boss Names of U.S. Secretaries of State

Tags: Sorry, Bainbridge Colby.

The top five most boss names of U.S. Secretaries of State:

5. Abel Parker Upshur (1843-1844)
4. Condoleezza Rice (2005-)
3. Elihu Root (1905-1909)
2. Hamilton Fish (1869-1877)
1. Philander C. Knox (1909-1913)

Honorable Mention: Lawrence Eagleburger (1992-1993), who as my friend Ned points out, sounds like something you’d be served at Ted Nugent’s ranch.


  1. No love for Robert Bacon nor for Lawrence Eagleburger, whose name suggests making a snack out of our revered national symbol.
