    I think Snowden had a much greater impact on the world we live in than Pope Francis. Being the person of the year isn't supposed to be an honor, its a statement on the influence of the person and their actions.

    Good point.

    The term shoe in has several different interpretations and my meaning was a shoe in the door whereas you are going with the sure thing version. I stand by my statement.

    Snowden probably should have won the calendar year.

    But I see Pope Francis having a greater impact in the long run. He hasn't strayed from Catholic theology but has emphasised it's more compassionate merits. I don't agree with his worldview, but he is an extremely potent ambassador for the worlds largest single religious denomination. I accept things about Catholicism can't change, but if he does what he says as well as telling others what to do I can only respect the man and how he handles his responsibility.

    The Pope did neither. He bashed trickle down economics.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    There's a difference between capitalism and unregulated capitalism. Unregulated capitalism delivered the sweat shops, with inhuman working conditions, lacking safety in the work place, child labor, insanely long work week and soooo many other ways that industry abused workers in America. And then the Democratic Party brought relief, known as interference by the Republican Party. That was the good ole days. They're about indistinguishable now. The Pope is right, I'm an atheist and even I like this guy.
