Is Julian Assange ‘Person of the Year’?

Julian Assange could soon join the company of Adolf Hitler and the Ayatollah Khomeini: He may be Time magazine’s next Person of the Year. The magazine says, “Assange’s exploits have cemented him as a candidate.” The voting of Time’s readers has him near the top, tied with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert for second place, while Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan somehow leads the pack. The ultimate decision lies with Time’s editors.
