    I nominate Ford motor company. They survuved teh meltdown and have been surging past everyone this year.

  • Coyote

    It is going to be Obama. I mean, c’mon.

    • Ron

      I don’t know about the Times Man of the Year, but I have a laundry list of candidates for turd of the year for the cover of Outhouse Times.

  • The Heavens are telling US to wake up

    COMMON SENSE would make GLENN BECK a logical choice, yet Time will tell US it’s Chairman Maobama replete with his little Red Snook hitherto, bamboozling syllabus.

      • What was the name of the dog in “The Jerk” again?

        “Man prefers to believe what he prefers to be true.” Right, cheappharmszn?

  • Bob Clark

    Bad Boy Bama. Can’t think of any more absolutely (with negative sign) impacting a person this past year. In sports, I’d say Kobe, Farve, and Tim Tebow (Gator) are good candidates.

  • Oregonian

    What about Timmy Geithner? I mean, he had a BIG impact on executive bonuses at major financial institutions.

    Really, though, my vote is for Hillary. I’m not kidding. She sacked up in a big way after a bitter primary, took an appointment from the guy whose job she thought she should be doing, kept her head low, went nose-to-the-grindstone and has accomplished a lot in restoring our foreign relations after eight years of Bush’s frat-boy overdrive.

    • Just say no to all the

      IMO, HRC remains a left wing nut on an iron curtain rod of BHOaloney!

    • Just say no to all the Dem snit chicanery

      IMO, Hillary is still a left wing nut on an iron curtain rod of BHOaloney!

  • Diamond Jim Franconni

    Guys. Listen. It has to be Teddy K. He and he alone has brought this state to its knees.
    That’s not easy.

  • Provo

    If health care reform passes it may just be Teddy Kennedy,

  • Ergo Largesse

    One we know won’t show is Sen Mary Landrieu, initially a hold-out on voting for Obama’s health care plan until she got $300 million in “pork” for her vote.

    Try not to think politican. There are so many other choices Time may consider.

  • anon

    In 2002 Time gave the award jointly to whistleblowers at Enron, World-Com, and the FBI. So this year the award should appropriately be given to the anonymous climategate whistleblower.

    I am not advising anyone to bet money on this happening.

  • D’oh!

    Tiger Woods for driving his once impeccable image way out of bounds. So far out, a “Caddy Shack (up) III” presentation is being considered BawdyWood moguls.

  • Ergo Largesse

    Time marches on. Ben Shalom Bernanke, Alan Greespan’s successor, now “Man of the Year”!
    Wholly havin’ a say on this, ” Holy [email protected] So the guy that contributed to the financial disease is recognized for what? Bringing us back from a financial depression?” D’oh!

    Frankly, I’d rather be in Philadelphia, seeing Joe ‘W.C. Fields’ Lieberman cutting the cards on matters dealting with our Constitution.
