    Didn't Hitler also once win the Time Magazine's person of the year award?

    You can still be a moronic inferior subhuman and win that "Award" you know.

    I remember when Time magazine was a major publication.

    Because the internet is voting.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I'm not surprised, when it is all said and done Putin will probably win the vote.

    Time's person of the year isn't about who is the best person it is about who makes the most news. That could be in a good or bad way, it doesn't matter it just about who is most reported on.
    It is not, nor should it ever be considered an endorsement or approval of the person named.

    The title "Man of the Year" is probably the wrong title, as it sounds like an "Award".... its not an award.

    Time's "Man of the Year" is the single person that best personifies the events of the year. When Hitler's army was marching through Europe, Hitler pretty much personified the events of that year (or, more accurately, years).

    Mitch McConnell would be a good candidate for "Man of the Year" as he 1) had to fight a serious fight (for awhile anyway) for his seat AND, leads the change of control of the Senate. He seems to well sum up the politics of 2014.
