On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Obama their Person of the Year, again! The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including the president, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle, Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, and Apple CEO Tim Cook. But, the president took the title again four years after he first won the award as president-elect in 2008. But who cares about the same-old, same-old? Who is Long Valley's Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”? Tell us your pick in the comment section below! We'll put together a poll of the top nominations on Wednesday for readers to choose from.
