0 Assange Time Magazines Man of the Year?....he's in good company.

2010 ?

According to a current snapshot of the Top 10, Assange is defeating Obama, Lady Gaga and The Chilean Miners as Time Magazine's Person of the Year. If 4chan has anything to say about it, Assange has this one in the bag.
The WikiLeaks whistleblower has finally made it to the list of candidates for TIME’s 2010 person of the year and there is a good chance that he will win it too.
Disclosing 250,000 confidential government documents pisses off many important and dangerous people and a stunt of this intensity needs some considerable guts. It seems like Julian Assange is a moral police, wanting to tame everything concerning the US banks, governments, military you name it.
Assange is at 80,000 votes into the race for the TIME’s 2010 person of the year....He's definitely in good company.
Here's a couple of other Time past "Winners:

 1938: Adolf Hitler
His figure strode over Europe with all the swagger of a conqueror.

Greatest single news event of 1938 took place on September 29, when four statesmen met at the Fuhrerhaus, in Munich, to redraw the map of Europe. The three visiting statesmen at that historic conference were Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain of Great Britain, Premier Edouard Daladier of France, and Dictator Benito Mussolini of Italy. But by all odds the dominating figure at Munich was the German host, Adolf Hitler.

1939 And 1942 Twice!!: Joseph Stalin
Paved the way for Hitler's war by signing secret pact with old enemy

On the year's shortest day, 60 years ago, in Gori, near Tiflis, a son was born to a poor, hard-working Georgian cobbler named Vissarion Djagushvili. The boy's pious mother christened him Joseph, after the husband of Mary, mother of Jesus.
But names were not to stick very long to this newest subject of the Tsar; he was to answer to Soso, Koba, David, Nijeradze, Chijikov and Ivanovich until at length he acquired the pseudonym of Stalin, Man of Steel.
