Half way through 2005, and I can’t say that there is a clear frontrunner. But for the third year in a row, we’ll throw some names out.
Yet, no single individual comes to mind. If the cover was selected today, I’d bet it would be a group or an idea like past winners “The Whistleblowers” or the “American Soldier.”
Maybe the “Gang of 12” from the Senate filibuster (ZZZzzzz) or Bush/Clinton for their fundraising efforts.
No one else really stands out.
I could see the battle to replace O’Conner producing a nominee in the second half of the year.
If the far right prevails, maybe James Dobson.
If the left prevails, I predict the winner will be Associate Justice Alberto Gonzalez.
Anyone have any first half favorites or second half predictions for Time’s most prestigous award?
