Wambach, after all, made her first appearance with the national team two years after its historic 1999 World Cup triumph. And her first set of teammates included Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Brandi Chastain, Kristine Lilly and Joy Fawcett, the soccer rock stars who put the sport on the map in the U.S. "It felt like, maybe five years ago, it was too much to bite off," Wambach says.

Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles)

Jeri Tulipan had plans for the $1 million her father had left the family. She would use it to care for her aging mother, crippled by Alzheimer's disease, and her older brother, who lives in an adult care facility. A lawyer suggested the Florida woman invest with a West Covina wealth management company operated by a British citizen named Robert Tringham, she said. He'd use her money as collateral to trade securities on margin and split the profits with her. Tulipan said it sounded like a safe home for her family's money.
