          can you think of anyone else who should be on the list? The award is not intended for those people who are a force for good like the Nobel Peace Prize, or for those who represent a certain point of view, but rather for those who @@@@SPAN ="poll_text_2">"most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill,
          and embodied what was important about the year".@@@@/SPAN>

            If you base your vote solely on the guidelines presented by that website then it would be hard to look past Dubya. Hard to think that anyone else on the list affected the news to such a degree.


            Wouldn't vote for Chavez anyway though, I'd rather show my dislike for American foreign policy in some other way than voting for that looper.

                    I never said I didn't like america. it's just a country, with lots of people,
                    and some of them think their government is behaving badly

                    ANYWAY if Chavez wins then the US will probably have to invade Time
                    magazine - and probably put Pinochet on the front- So you can be
                    part of history.

                      Actually the US is a country where most of the people know their government is behaving badly.

                          Yeah, like, So. What can ye do about it? Dubya is still there for another 2 stretch but all your voters refused to have a hissy fit when they were voting for the Senate. Returning all those Dems didn't do much so far.

                            Most definitely a decent enough soul when it comes to improving the lives of the average Venezuelan, from what I've read. Literacy levels, public health, infrastructure and the general standard of living seem to have become infinitely better under his rule. It's when he leaves his country and decides to express himself in his own unique way to the world that I begin to worry.


                            He clearly seriously craves attention and seems to think he is the only person in the world capable of standing up to Bush. I cringed when he called Bush "the devil", which he did while speaking to the UN iirc. Also that publicity stunt involving the guns bought from Ahmadinejad was embarassing.



                            Hopefully he can continue his policy of using money generated from oil for the benefit of the Venezuelan people, one would also hope this practice catches on in South America. I just wish he'd shut up and get on with it sometimes.

                              in some ways i agree, many refer to castro as the grandfather, chavez as the father and morales as the sun.

                              the thing is that there are so few standing up to bush. personally i
                              would be delighted if bertie said that bush was wrong. (though devil
                              may be a tad strong.)
