Time magazine has just published their list of finalists for “The 2008 Time 100.” What's that you ask? It's the magazine's list of the world's most influential leaders, artists, entrepreneurs and thinkers.

And never-sleeping entertainment industry reporters.

Ensconced among fellow nominees Mike Huckabee, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the Dalai Lama is our own Nikki Finke.

So though the LA Weekly makes no specific endorsements in such elections, this year we think “Vote Finke.”
