Here are my not-that-thought-out predictions. Post your own or shred mine to pieces. 1. The Working Mother I'm thinking this has to be the favorite. For one thing, Obama couldn't have won Tuesday without the support from college educated women. The "binders full of women" went viral in a way that no man could have predicted (and less meme-y, but no less viral, was Romney's promise to help women work a full workday AND cook for their husbands). The "having it all" debate was all the rage, and there's an entire corner of the internet that's invisible to most men that discusses work-life balance issues for women. The only thing that would keep me from putting money on this is their "Mom enough" cover with the breastfeeding 3-year-old, which may seem redundant. 2. Marissa Meyer Not the second favorite, but I'm putting her here because she's an offshoot of #1, a mom/CEO. Then again, it's only Yahoo! 3. Tim Cook Staying in the tech sector, how he guided Apple through Year 1 After Steve got a lot of attention. The product releases weren't as sexy, but he's still heading the biggest company in the universe, posting record profits. But then, Zuckerberg got the cover in 2010, so they may shy away from another geek. 4. The Gay Couple Clean sweep in November with a blemish in May in North Carolina. Plus, 'Modern Family'. 5. Chris Christie, Mike Bloomberg and Andrew Cuomo and/or Hurricane Sandy first responders The darkhorse and sentimental choice, which Time likes. 6. Barack Obama I don't know, he was probably the most newsworthy person this year. And the last. And the year before that. And so on. 7. The American Voter Pretty good turnout, right?
