Ann Coulter Conservative best-selling author
I name Sarah Palin for her genius at annoying all the right people. I haven't seen liberals so enraged by a woman since me. Once John McCain was nominated, the election was a snoozefest until our hero bounded out of the Alaskan tundra. Palin is wildly interesting, charismatic and charming, so Democrats fixated on her inexperience--meaning she is only five times as experienced as our next President.

Amid a horrific financial crisis, all we hear are calls for more of the money-printing, spending and subsidies that created this mess. So I choose my great teacher, Ludwig von Mises, champion of the Austrian School of economics, who taught us how a central bank like the Fed causes booms and busts and how to build prosperity through sound money and economic freedom.

It sounds like a cliché, but in times of turmoil, stick with those who provide inspiration, comfort and love. That is what Oprah Winfrey has always done for me. Whether it is insight into the things I feel as a person, a woman, a mom or a citizen of this world, I always know where to turn when I'm confused or unsure.

I nominate Barack Obama. He has galvanized the people of the U.S. and inspired the whole world. Young folks everywhere see him as a symbol of hope. Amid all the terrible news about such calamities as the financial crisis and the food crisis, he stands out as the overwhelming good news. He can create history by setting the political and economic tone for the 21st century.

I agree with Ann. Sarah is the real deal.
That “naughty librarian” thing sends me every time.
Forgot the “;-)” at end of 2nd sentence.
Great post to follow the idiotic rantings of Colon Powell.
At least Sarah made the final 4. But Time will surely go with Zero, or their subscriber base will go totally bonkers!
“[Obama] stands out as the overwhelming good news”
They should go around door to door and ask people if they’ve heard the good news.
I nominate Barack Obama.
A guy named Muhammad nominating 0bama. Imagine that.
What subscriber base?
So a guy named Muhammed nominates Hussein Obama.
Good point, maybe Time will just go online someday and quit the newsstand.
I admire Dara Torres for what she accomplished, she shouldn’t have to turn to a knucklehead like Oprah for inspiration. She’s not part of the solution, she’s part of the problem.
I’m guessing a lot of that will be covered in the seven million dollar book deal she’s doing right now. (with a media tour in Iowa and New Hampshire afterwards of course :)
” I would like to see some red meat Sarah now that see isn’t under McCain.”
I would as well. I think Sarah has tremendous potential, but now she can step out of the (squat and hunched over) shadow of McCain and start conveying her own vision for America. She should not only write op-eds, but give speeches on the values of conservatism in an increasingly socialistic environment.
Until this above statement I was with Ann. Oprah did establish herself as caring, open, sincere, wanting to give others the benefit of her intelligence, etc.
Only now Oprah is in to “new age” religion. The study she is producing on satellite radio for “The Course In Miracles” with Marianne Williams, is just that.
Like “The SECRET” that she did/promoted on her show a couple of years ago. She is fostering the NEW AGE MOVENENT. Clearly. Also she loved OBAMA and I heard her say with tears ... “whatever it takes to get him elected ... we must do.”
She is entitled to her opinion of course. She is very influential ... so ...
Sarah is a terrific for the person of the year. 100%
I have to agree with Ann on this one. As I’ve said before, one of the reasons I like Sarah Palin is the fact that lefties react to her the way a vampire reacts to sunlight.
Just give it to BO and we’ll continue not reading you.
