    OK ... the 99% guys? Or are we talking about people who protested killer regimes in countries and took their life in their own hands? A little different that "camping out" for a cause.

    Not Navy SEAL Team 6?

    Gabby Giffords?

    Brett Favre (I mean, he actually stayed retired this time ...)

    I would have been happier if they went with Dwyane Wade. :D

    It's almost like they are afraid to select a political figure at this point because it will automatically cause a shitstorm on the other side.

    If you protested at all this year, you're a two time winner.

    (Wouldn't that be a great line on a resume: "Two time recipient of Time magazine, "Person of the Year Award.")

    Put me in the cop-out camp. Sick of the collective winners. Would have been much better if they had just picked the guy in Tunisia who self immolated.

    They're saving him for the upcoming "Greatest human ever" issue. Tebow will come in slightly ahead of Jesus, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II and Gandhi.
