Wonder of wonders

Should not the wonders of the world be obvious to all? Is a worldwide 'election' needed to decide which are the best of the lot?
And why should there be just seven? Just because there were seven ancient wonders, should the present day have exactly the same number? Not one more or less?
And since the Pyramids at Giza were considered a part of the Ancient wonders and they are still standing tall, are they one of the seven by default and the competition only for the other six slots?
What a waste of time and money! And Rahman has to promote the Taj Mahal's candidacy by composing an 'anthem' for the occasion. So now that rahman has composed a song for it,the Taj Mahal merits an automatic inclusion into the list. Anyways, overzealous Indians who occupy the globe in millions are bound to vote for the Taj Mahal, making its inclusion a foregone conclusion.

P.S: I found two interesting inclusions amongst the 'finalists'. The statue of liberty and Timbuktu. I do not think there is anything grandiose attached to either of them for them to be deemed as Wonders of the world along the ranks of the Pyramids at Giza, Acropolis, and the Machu Picchu.
