You Are Not On Time’s ‘Person of the Year’ Short List


This morning on the Today show, Time managing editor Richard Stengel revealed the short list for his magazine’s “Person of the Year.” The prestigious award has gone to Presidents (Obama, GWB (twice), Clinton), businessmen (Ted Turner, Jeff Bezos), and you (you). Unfortunately, you missed the cut this year, but these six people didn’t: Nancy Pelosi, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Ben Bernanke, President Obama, Steve Jobs and Usain Bolt. Of course, it wouldn’t be Time without a gimmick, and this year’s is the shortlisting of “the Chinese worker.” But we’re still holding out hope that a last minute push will get you the award. Really, you’ve earned it.
