Who Is Your Favorite Newsmaker of 2008?

Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John McCain, Sarah Palin, and Hillary Clinton may have monopolized the front-page news this year because of the campaign, but there's a pack of breakout newsmakers outside the White House hopeful lineup like Joe the Plumber, Eliot Spitzer, and Michael Phelps. Generating end-of-the-year heat is Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich, who is accused of trying to sell Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.

I'll give my vote to Sarah Palin purely for her adding a little pizazz and spunk to this year's election race. Of course, Pres-Elect Obama and my girl Hilary are up there, too, but something about the hockey mom compelled me to vote for her.

Governor Blago is one heck of a story.

Joe the Plumber is a pretty smart guy. He certainly did quite a bit to expose Obama's wealth redistribution plan (which for some inexplicable reason isn't socialism).

Sorry, Jessie :p Does it help that I agree with your description of Palin?

I hate hearing about Joe the Plumber. Couldn't get enough news on Barack Obama though. He's my favorite by far.

Hey hey I happen to be a huge fan of dolphin boy, all the way back to his first Olympics. I think I'm going to pick Palin, she terrified me, she made me laugh, when I realized she wasn't go to be VP I felt a rush of exhilaration and happiness and her legs weren't half bad either. Palin, in retrospect, was like a very entertaining movie.

Barack Obama, of course. Sarah Palin is a close second.
