TIME's annual "Person of the Year" issue hits newsstands on Dec. 21. The choice will be made by the magazine's editor's, but the people's choice can be voted on in an online poll.
In addition to the predictable names like President Obama, Mitt Romney and Bill Clinton, a few that stand out on the lineup:
--Vice President Joe Biden
--The Daily Show's Jon Stewart
--Psy, of "Gangnam Style" fame
--Justice John Roberts
