Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., aren't very much alike, but in Time magazine's view, they're among the 100 most influential people.  

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell does not appear on the list, though he wrote the profile for his junior counterpart from Kentucky. McConnell praised Paul  for his willingness to speak to a wide variety of audiences and for avoiding attacks on other members of the party.
