It's almost that time of year when the editors over at Time magazine decide who to put on their cover as "Person of the Year." This year, according to Reuters, the contenders include George W. Bush, God, Mohammed, Michael Moore, Mel Gibson, the "Terrorist," and the "Blogosphere." But the leading contender is apparently Karl Rove. Remember, the criteria for Person of the Year is: "the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year, for better or for worse." Hitler and Stalin each won, too.
