Who Should Be 'Person of the Year' ?

OK, our reign is almost over. Time magazine dubbed "you" and me, and the guy next you as Person of the Year for 2006.

Will another "concept person" earn the honor in 2007, or will it be a flesh-and-blood newsmaker who has made a significant impact on the world? It's an 80 year old tradition and the '07 list of contenders is out. The winner will be announced tomorrow morning. Al Gore? Vladimir Putin? Steve Jobs?

Your thoughts on the list? Your suggestions for other candidates? Mine: A child chewing on the bottom of a painted toy wearing a T-shirt that's the Chinese flag.
