Vote for Time‘s Person of the Year

The show must go on! They may be laying off and restructuring but apparently Time still has the ability to nominate the Person of the Year…with your help. Time managing editor Rick Stengel has posted this video on YouTube asking for your recommendations. Depending on the outcome of next week’s election we have too assume that Barack Obama is a bit of a shooin, though Sarah Palin could probably give him a run for his money along with Tina Fey — and that lineup folks is pretty much all you need to know about this year’s election! Anyway, as a former Person of the Year probably your vote will carry extra weight, so have at it.
