So I was just actually on a panel the other day where they're trying to figure out 2012's <em>Person of the Year</em>.

Who do you think it should be?" <br /><br />At first, Bezos dodged the question: "You have put me on the spot. I don't know." But he then agreed with Lauer's suggestion: "In an election year, you know, Obama would be a pretty good choice." </p>
