Who Do You Think Should Be Time Magazine's Person of the Year?

The nominees are in for 2012, so who do you think Time Magazine should choose? And why?

On Dec. 14, Time magazine will announce its Person of the Year—which isn’t guaranteed to be an actual man or woman. But in the run-up, the magazine has invited votes on 40 candidates, including Barack Obama, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Some people have as many votes against them as for them. Included in the options are The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle. 

So if it was up to you, who would you choose as the 2012 Time Person of the Year? And Why? (Doesn't necessarily have to be someone on the list)

Well, Kenneth, we're living in the time prophecied in the bible where people are lovers of themselves. So, it's the ones that make the hollywood talk circuit (even our politicians do that) and go before congress to get others to pay for their extracurricular activities that make the front page now. Sad, isn't it?

David Brown- If that is your and Times' definition of "Man of the year", both of you are yet another indicator of what is wrong with our country.

Oh, brother.

My choice is Psy. There is so much division in our country and world. It is great that Psy provided a diversion from that division with "Gangnam Style" and that hilarious dance.

David - you have a great point. Psy did something that few others have managed to do -- put a smile on millions of faces and bring a little fun into our lives. Spreading joy and happiness should be worth at least a few votes.
