If it makes you feel better, I don't think that ANY politician (or their agents) should ever be 'Man of the Year'. I don't exactly know what the criteria is, but I would choose someone who doesn't make a career out of manipulating people. I remember the amazon.com guy winning, I guess that was a semi-decent choice.

I'm betting it'll be the hurricanes. Back in the 80's their "Person" was the computer. And I think Newsweek touts a "Newsmaker of the Year," which would also be the hurricanes. Wouldn't be the first time they made the same choice(s).

I'm saddened to say I think you're right... both of those magazines need to grow a pair.

Sandy Berger for bending over and taking it in the rear to save the Clinton administration in front of the 9/11 Commission. Shame he was the only one to come out of that with a crimnal record.... [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If there's one force that is going to have more impact on us in the next 20 years then anything, it's probably Nature -

Global Warming plus Cat 5 hurricanes = major disruptions to the American Way of life - why not make it person of the year.
