Who will be Person of the Year 2008?

Time magazine has published the above shortlist of 25 contenders for their Person of the Year 2008 award.

Click here to see photos and read brief biographical blurbs of each one:

Of course, it could very well be that Time is just teasing us and they have deliberately not included the winner.

Who do you think should be named Person of the Year 2008?

If your choice is not in Time’s top 25 shortlist, please nominate “Other” and tell us who you think should be named Person of the Year.

Enjoy the poll!

I'm thinking it will be either Michael Phelps or Barrack Obama, but I could be very wrong.

I usually am when it comes to these things!   :laugh:

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I think it has to be Barack Obama. No matter what you think of him, and no matter how much you might feel he's already been overexposed. I can't think of anyone else who generated nearly as much interest, worldwide, this year.
