    Time Person of the Year is just like SI Sportsman of the Year. Whose face on the cover sells? The Pope definitely has more commercial potential than Snowden.

    Yeah, I understand that.

    Of the finalists, I'd also put Bashar Assad ahead of the pope, too, I think. The more I think about it, Edward Snowden hits on Time's criteria (most influenced the news this year) and my subjective criteria (importance of how he influenced the news).

    Oh, I agree, but the Pope wasn't an unreasonable choice. Better than the year it was You, for sure.

    You didn't like winning Time's Person of the Year?

    Jonathan Martin, the Times' national political correspondent tweets this:

    Who was last anti-abortion advocate to win?

    Way to boil the Pope down to "anti-abortion advocate". I guess that's all he is in some people's minds.

    In 2006 they picked like a couple billion anti-abortion advocates.

    Anybody who doesn't have 2006 Time Person of the Year on their resume isn't doing it right.

    Gee, I really thought Miley Cyrus had a shot. Time wouldn't have announced her as a finalist if she wasn't seriously being considered. They wouldn't throw her name out there just to get some free publicity. Not Time Magazine.

    I'm with Ragu here. Frank's a nice guy and all, but Snowden was the obvious choice.
