Our panelists predict who will be Time Magazine's Person of the Year next year.

PETER SAGAL, host:

Now Panel, who will be next year's Person of the Year? Peter Grosz?

Mr. PETER GROSZ (Comedy Writer/Performer): Barack Obama, after he goes back on his last campaign promise and becomes a Republican, the choice will be obvious.

(Soundbite of laughter)

SAGAL: Kyrie O'Connor?

Ms. KYRIE O'CONNOR (Deputy Editor/Blogger, Houston Chronicle): Canada, because by this time next year it's going to be looking really good.

SAGAL: Adam Felber?

Mr. ADAM FELBER (Writer, "Real Time with Bill Maher"): Mark Zuckerberg will win again, but the award will be totally redesigned and confusing.

(Soundbite of laughter)

CARL KASELL, host:

Well, if Time Magazine chooses any of those people, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Peter Grosz, Kyrie O'Connor and Adam Felber. Thanks to all of you, you beautiful people for listening.

(Soundbite of applause)

SAGAL: I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week.

(Soundbite of music)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
