Who Will Be Person of the Year 2009?

For several weeks over the summer, the hordes of Iranians clogging the
streets to oppose an apparently rigged presidential election gripped
much of the world. Their courage and determination in the face of a
brutal government crackdown demonstrated the depth of their willingness
to fight for what they believed in. The death of protester Neda
Agha-Soltan became a tragic symbol for the movement, showing just how
far the ruling regime of Supreme Leader Khamenei and President
Ahmadinejad would go to keep its grip on power.
