New York magazine placed Howard Rubenstein in very elite company this week, including him their Power Dozen, a list anchored by mayor Mike Bloomberg. Called the “dean of damage control,” Rubenstein is noted for his cross-aisle brokering, and for engineering the mayor’s term limit putsch. The 76 year-old is President of Rubenstein Associates, a firm he founded in the 50s.

Megamogul Rupert Murdoch made the list, as did Vogue EiC Anna Wintour–the former owns a multi-billion dollar media empire, while the latter conducts and champions a multi-billion dollar business that employs 175,000.

The other nine are Al Sharpton, Sheldon Silver, Stephen Ross, Jamie Dimon, Herb Pardes, Andrew Cuomo, Mike Fishman, and of course, Chuck Schumer.
