Chavez "Person of the Year" update

[First posted 9 a.m. 12/8; updated and bumped; make sure to read below this item for other new posts]

Hugo Chavez up to 21%! Vote here if you haven't already! And spread the word! Ahmadinejad is toast! ;-)

Update: 22% and closing fast on first place!

First posted 9 a.m. 12/8; updated 12/9: 23% and just 2 points behind Ahmadinejad!

3 p.m. update: 24% and just 1 point behind!

11 p.m. update: Tied up at 25%-all!

6:30 a.m. Sunday update: Chavez takes the lead, 25-24! I remind you that when we started, if I remember correctly, Ahmadinejad had 33% and Chavez 8%. And this hasn't been a case of ballot-box stuffing, since you can only vote once (well, unless you're clever and suitably motivated).

10:00 a.m. Sunday update: Chavez increases his lead to 26-24!

8:30 p.m. Sunday update: Chavez running away with it - 28-23!

2:30 p.m. Monday update: Chavez increases his lead - 31-23! TIME Magazine had better get the message!

9:00 a.m. Tuesday update: It's a blowout - 33-22! Now be honest. How many of you thought I was too optimistic four days ago when I wrote "Ahmadinejad is toast!"?
