Edie Windsor Wins My Person of the Year Award

With a list that includes Ted Cruz, Bashar Assad and Miley Cyrus, it's a pretty shallow field for Time's Person of the Year award. Tne new pope has definitely given us hope, but my vote is for Edie Windsor, who took what should have been her golden years and turned them into the busiest and most meaningful part of her life, creating a legacy that will help millions of LGBT people for centuries to come.


Here are the final ten contenders for TIME’s Person of the Year (listed alphabetically):
Bashar Assad, President of Syria
Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder
Ted Cruz, Texas Senator
Miley Cyrus, Singer
Pope Francis, Leader of the Catholic Church
Barack Obama, President of the United States
Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran
Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services
Edward Snowden, N.S.A. Leaker
Edith Windsor, Gay rights activist
