Congratulations Mr. Obama. I was Time Magazine's person of the year in 2006, welcome to the POY club.

She was named as a runner-up. So that should offer some insight to the relevance of the entire concept. It's all just a ploy to get mindless masses to buy their stupid magazine.

I think the POY should have been the U.S. electorate for having voted the pleasure of the MSM

Palin being named a finalist was just a cursory nod to her redneck worshipers.

Well, like her or not, she did figure prominently in the process - so #2 is a reasonable choice. I doubt many of her supporters will buy Time (doubt even if she reads it) - so this selection will not increase the circulation #s for Time.
