Some of you may have noticed that Time gave person of the year to 'You' (See here).

Well, that was clearly a really, really shite decision.

Well, it is time for UG to decide!

After one week the two candidates with the most votes will go head to head in the grand final.

Note: This is not about who you like, but about who had the biggest impact in 2006.

The candidates:

George Bush
Well, he is the worlds most powerful man after all, of course he's going to be on this poll! And it certainly was an interesting year for the American Head of State, with a continuing war in Iraq and a general destabilising Middle East. And let's not forget the Republicans losing control of the House and the Senate!

Hugo Chavez
Venezuelas radical President has been as controversial as ever, being criticised as 'the new Castro!' by right-wingers and hailed as 'the new Castro!' by left-wingers. Quite. Possibly the most influential man in Latin America, he has won his third-term in office with a landslide victory and has now labelled himself a 'Trotskyist' and has promised to deliver socialism in Venezuela. This is someone the US are keeping their eyes on.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Another vocal opponent of the US, Irans President declared that his country has developed enriched uranium in 2006. Widely seen as being partially responsible for the on-going insurgency in Iraq. Also held a conference to 'review the Holocaust' with well known anti-semites and white supremacists.

Saddam Hussein
Well, it's not every year that a former Head of State is executed and then the video of it is leaked onto the internet.

Moshe Katsav
The President of Israel. The Israel-Lebanon was one of the defining events of 2006, and the conflict in Palestine is showing no signs of improving.

Pope Benedict XVI
He said some stuff about Muslims that was taken the wrong way and he looks like the bad guy from Star Wars.

Kim Jong-il
The mad guy from Korea immortalised in Team America: World Police. North Korea built some nukes. South Korea got angry. Everybody else didn't do much.

Nancy Pelosi
The first female Speaker of the House in US history. Deserves a mention, eh?

Random people on the internet
Well it's only fair that Times shite decision gets a shot as well.

George Bush for making me laugh at his stupidity


For him to be in power, he cant be that stupid, now can he?
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.

Moshe Katzav is the president of Isreal, but over here the president doesn't realy do anything, he's more of a symbol. The prime minister is incharge of the country.

Btw Moshe Katzav is now being charged of sexual harasment, lol. He's such a tard.

EDIT: Actually he has one political role, the president choses the party that will lead the government after the elections.

well, keep in mind we can't really tell how stupid he is, all his speeches are written for him, his advisors tell him what to do (as with any president), pretty much everything he does has the input of someone else.

He probably can't take a crap without somebody offering to do it for him, or another one convincing him he shouldn't because the Democrats will use this as ammo because...(insert random political jargon).

I chose Hugo Chavez out of those, though it was close to Time's decision.

Well, he is the worlds most powerful man after all, of course he's going to be on this poll!

In my opinion, if a group of unknown guys in the middle of a large-ass desert, they are probably living in mud huts for god's sake, can get a strangle hold on you, and you can do nothing in return... How about you tell me all about power?

I'm not taunting America, I am not saluting the terrorists, this is merely an observation from a bystander.
Even if we are to ignore my statement above, and refrain from that point all together, George Bush holds very little power (on a very, very large scale, mind you). He can't do nothing without the support of the goverment, and to some extent the people. Thus, the power of America is not controlled by Bush at all, but by the faceless masses.

Dictators do not find themselves in this situation at all, and neither do terrorist. They are the single operating, one-man armies that have something that could be likened to true power.
As long as there's democracy, no one man will ever be the "most powerful man in the world", at least that's my opinion.

I don't know. She may very well be the PotY in 2007, but her influence was very little until the end of the year.

Why'd you pick a bunch of wankers?

I picked Chavez out of those though, because his existence upsets the US government.

I don't think any of them have had a huge effect. Most of the people who might win lead a country and probably don't make the decisions themselves.

Read the second sentence . I don't think any of those people have really made the decisions themselves. They have huge organisations/governments behind them making the real decisions. They're figureheads, nothing more.
