  •  Obviously, Nancy Pelosi is person of the year (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Too busy writing silly stories about Nancy Pelosi, Time fails to recognize the obvious: Pelosi is the most notable indicator and symbol of the year's seismic shift in the American political scene.  

    She is the first female Speaker of the House, she is arguably the most powerful woman in the world right now, and, with the Senate a virtual tie, she as leader of the House is the most powerful antidote to the Bush Administration's continued incompetence and pig-headedness.  She also represents the progressive anti-war vanguard of the political change that hit in 2006, and it seems such an obvious choice I don't know how Time missed it.  

    Instead, they chose something gimmicky that will be remembered as the shark-jumping of their "Man/Person of the Year" series-- kinda like People saying Homer Simpson is sexiest man of the year.
