Who's YOUR Person of the Year?

TIME magazine has been choosing a "Person of the Year" since 1927, when aviator Charles Lindbergh appeared on the cover.  In the past, the company has defined its choice as "the person who most affected the events of the year."  And this time around, the  magazine picked Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke for his work on the U.S. economy.

Who's YOUR person of the year, and what is your choice based on?

Carl Azuz, Anchor

    My person of the year is my Grandpa because he has saved a family from a fire they didn't know was happening, donates to charities and recently has had his fourth heart attack but is still living. That's why I think he should be person of the year.

    I think the person of the year should be Barack Obama, because he has done many things for this country since elected president. He went all around the world to tell the country's that we owe money to that it will be paid. He is trying to make America a better nation.

    Everyone is saying, Barack Obama. I disaggree because I can't name anything he has done for me or this contry and I doubt that you can tell me anything else. i'm not racist or anything like that, but just because he is the first black president, I can see no change in what he promised us before he was elected.

    There are plenty of people who work for charity and ask nothing in return who get no recognition. I think the "person" of the year should be a shout out to them.

    I would have to say that my person of the year would be President Obama. Not because he is the first black President or because of all that he promises to do but because of all the controversey and promises surrounding him. Like the Nobel Peace Prize that he won, or the UN meeting about Climate change. Also all that he has promised to do for America and how Americans feelings towards him have changed because of the outcome (or lack therof) of these promises.

    After a contentious election for the President of the United States, she accepted the Secretary of State position and has run with it. Many people around the world have a positive view and new respect for the former first lady of the United States.

I would love to meet Lenard Nimoy as well. He is all so one on my favorites. I am thinking about going in to actting or in to a real federal agency. So you can say those three men have given me alot to think about over the next two to five years.

    I think that Hillary Clinton is the "Person of the Year" because of all of her accomplishments. She ran for president last year and didn't make it but came back strong this year as Secretary of State. She had many great accomplishments. She was responsible for an increase in the international affairs budget, which the Obama administration passed. She even came out on top on a debate, with Vice President Joe Biden, to send troops to Afghanistan. She was also able to get the Honduran President to agree to begin talking with the Micheletti government. She also started an initiative to stop world hunger, and accentuate the role of all woman. Lastly she tried to repair our image to people in Pakistan. Unfortunately, though, she probably won't run for president again.

    I believe the person of the year is President Obama.
    He tells us we can make the world better.
    He works for all the world.
    I hope his ideal will be realized in 2010.

    My person of the year is Blair White all-star reciver for the Michigan State Spartans. I chose him because he is one of the greatest wide recivers in MSU history. He helped us defeat our all time rival the Michigan Wolverines twice. If it wasn't for him then the Spartans wouldn't have gone to three bowl games in a row. This was his last year playing for the Spartans and he will be missed.

    The person of the year has to be Tim Tebow. He hasn't just changed his teammates lives on the field he has also changed lives off the field. He is the the best college football player ever but to him that isn't the most important part. His is telling people about god and he isn't afraid to show it. He has changed lives in many country's and he is with out a doubt one my heroes, not because of his great football skills but because of all that he does for people off the field for people.
