Time Magazine will reveal its "Person of the Year" early next week (the issue goes to print at 3 am Sunday). The weekly's editor (Jim Kelly) was on Charlie Rose tonight and talked about a variety of possibilities.
Likewise, blogger Gawker speculated about some of the leading candidates.
Kelly mentioned the possibility that bloggers might be named. He specifically mentioned the lawyer known as "Buckhead" who helped topple Dan Rather because of its broadcasting of apparently forged Bush military records.
Gawker mentions Wonkette...
If bloggers are named as "Persons of the Year," I hope Kevin Drum is highlighted. And Digby.
Drum is my pick for blogger of the year, basically because Billmon stopped blogging.
