Just a wild guess, but I think it’ll be that guy who won the Nobel Peace Prize, although maybe they should do a special edition of “Person of the Millenium” for that.

Oh, yeah. Building it up for 3 days will give the “surprise” nomination some real street-buzz.

Everyone knew who it was going to be last November, ya putzes!

Gee, I hope Obama gets it. He’s been ignored so by the press. He’ so shy and retiring maybe this will help bring him out of his shell. / s

I really do hope he gets it. Obama has changed the meaning of overexposure.

I think we all know who it is....zero!!!! I didn’t see the Babawawa special (if it’s even been on yet)but I’d bet dollars to donuts that zero was her #1 most fasinating person....the media just can’t help itself....they are so firmly in his bed that they can’t seem to find the courage or sense to get out.....sad! And I am so sick of the Oprah ads about her “evening at the wh” with those two chicago thugs.....

With support for health care “reform” down to 39% I doubt it. Obama was person of year last year, I think, plus his 47% approval rating would keep him off the cover.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they picked Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin this year.

Sarah Palin deserves it. Her numbers are far better than Obammie or any one else.

Her book is a runaway best seller.

People stand in 4 hours lines to get an autograph.

On and on and on....

Yep, agree. She is after all, the female of the latest Camelot Clan. They are - don't you know - the favorites of all of America. They are the elite.

His first name starts with an "O" and ends with an "A"

His FIRST name?

That would have to be Osama Bin Dead

Or maybe Opra Winfrey.

Olivia de Haviland?

Olivia Newton-John?

How much fawning is too much fawning? Can people actually fawn over a half white half black president too much? These and other weighty questions will be discussed on Wednesday the 17th.

Tune in to see ‘The One’ be glorified yet again. Listen in to catch phrases like, “Never before has...”, and “Now we can respect America for the first time...”, and “Well, I don’t deserve it, but it was sure nice of you to kiss my....”

Yes it will be a fun filled day to be sure, one for the record books.

Is there a child of the year award?

They probably can't give it to Dear Leader two years in a row because they know they'll be laughed at.

They'll give it to Al Gore, as a going away present to global warming hysteria.
