DJ, I know that some of the credit for the Dems to take the majority has gone to Nancy, but I don’t think so and would say she might be a contender
for the POY next year depending on how things go.
If the names listed are truly the only ones being considered, I still think Pelosi would be the most likely choice.
I don't think TIME will choose anyone considered "bad" or too controversial such as Ahmadinejad, Jong-Il or Chavez. I know they've picked such
people in the past, but not for a long time and I doubt any of these people merit such attention anyway.
Bush already got it in 2000 and the only thing interesting about him this year is the stunning amount of power and influence that he's lost.
I see no reason for Gore either, maybe next year if he makes a big political comeback and looks like he's ahead of Hillary.
Rice? She hasn't done much of note this much either (at least publically) that I know of.
The You Tube Guys? I think most of their readership won't even know what the hell they're talking about.
That leaves Pelosi, she's the highest ranking woman in U.S. gov't history and was the most visible face of the Democratic Party when they retook
Congress after 12 years of Republican rule. I don't like her, nor the fact that the Democrats took over, but she seems like the most logical choice
of the ones listed.
