Speaker Pelosi named finalist for Time magazine 'Person of the Year' By Jordan Fabian - 12/14/09 05:21 PM ET

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is among the seven finalists chosen for Time magazine's annual "Person of the Year," according to media reports on Monday.

Other finalists in the realm of politics include last year's winner President Barack Obama, Afghanistan commanding Gen. Stanley McChrystal and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

"Look, she's the first woman Speaker of the House. She's the strongest Speaker of the House in decades," Time managing editor Richard Stengel said of Pelosi on NBC's "Today" show. "She had piloted what is probably the most important legislation in decades through the House. She's a really, really pivotal lawmaker."

Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Jamaican sprinter and Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt are also included as finalists.

Another finalist is the "Chinese worker," which the magazine said has become an influential international economic power.

The award is given to an individual who has achieved a notable accomplishment in the past year. Time's editors will name the winner on Wednesday.

Every U.S. president has won the award since Time launched the tradition in 1927, with the exceptions of Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Gerald Ford. President George W. Bush won it it 2000 and 2004 following both of his electoral victories.

This is great. Do it, name her. Then the whole country will understand what fools work at Time.

Of course, they will just name Obama again.

There was a time when it was important. It began its slide downward in the 1970s when it began featuring ice cream on its cover. Just another soft news magazine.

The person of the year is the one who released the climate change e-mails reveling the fraud of global warming. Will save us trillions and prevent us from having draconion controls placed upon our business and personal lives.

I would like fellow Freepers to correct the following:

“She’s the strongest Speaker of the House in decades...”

Yeah, money don’t grow on trees.

Hose up the existing system, and the market incentive which tended to improve the efficiency of the system (find an easier cheaper way to do the same thing and your profits will go up without you having to raise the amounts you bill) will simply go away.

What's a Time Magazine?

Newsstand magazine sales drop 12 percent

Snip 
Time, dropped 0.5 percent to 3.372 million copies, while Newsweek -- which underwent a major redesign this year -- dropped 3.3 percent to 2.646 million copies.

Nancy Pelosi isn't winning any popularity contests

Snips:

Poor Nancy.  She's got the Congress in her hands but she can't get any respect--or at least love.  According to Rasmussen Reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains America's best-known - and least-liked - congressional leader, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Democrats in marginal House districts might want to keep these numbers in mind when they choose whether to do as Speaker Pelosi desires, or to vote to protect the interests of their constituents.

Of course you have heard of "Time Magazine's Person of the Year." It is the American Version of the Nobel Prize. With a few exceptions, these filthy radical liberals have grabbed control of the world media.
