2010 Person of the Year

One of my favorite parlor games is trying to guess who's going to win sundry "Person of the Year" awards. Earlier today, Drew Brees of the Saint's was chosen as the 2010 Sportsman of the Year. He was among my top three guesses, along with Coach K and LeBron James (for mostly the wrong reasons). I think Coach K should have gotten it but Brees is a good and fair choice.

So, on to the next - Times Magazine's Person of the Year. My guess is either Mark Zuckerberg, Julian Assange of Wikileaks or dare I say - Sarah Palin. I'm giving the nod to Zuckerberg.

Let's hear what you all have to say -- anyone else in the mix that I might be forgetting?

I like... strike that... think Assange is the most impactful. However, I think his thing is still developing and they tend to give it to someone who's closed a chapter in the last year. Zuckerberg would seem (read that how you will) like a transparent sop to new media... I don't think they'll do it. I think it will be a para-tea-party figure. Boehner? DeMint? Donohue?

Outside shot: Evan&Biz or Elon
