Vote for TIME Person of the Year

TIME Person of the Year? Who will be TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year 2008? Some of the top contenders include Barack Obama, Tina Fey (?), Michael Phelps, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. TIME will let you cast a vote, but the editors will announce their own selection on December 19.

    I predict Barack Obama as “Time Magazine” Person of the year. This is a historic moment in America, – the first African American to be the President-Elect of the United States.

    A second prediction would be the whole Obama family with their beautiful children.

  2. Sharon Gamble says:

    I agree. It will be Barack Obama. And…although I think it will be the right choice…I do feel he has had more than enough time on TIME’s covers!!

  3. John Ayan says:

    How can it be anyone but Obama? With all the coverage he’s had in the media, this would be a total surprise if it isn’t him.

  4. Ray Fowler says:

    I agree that it has to be Obama. First of all, it should be. When it comes to people, his is the story of the year. But given that TIME has put his picture on the front cover of their magazine 15 times this year (including the last four in a row), I can’t imagine them picking anyone else.
