For the 10th anniversary of Time Magazine’s annual 100 Most Influential People, Time is holding a public vote for their Most Influential person of the past 10 years, and the top two contenders are pop icon Lady Gaga, and activist/politician Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma. Gaga of course is not only known for her album sales, massive Twitter following, and outfit choices, but also she took to philanthropy last year by starting the Born This Way Foundation, dedicated to youth empowerment and anti-bullying. Not to underplay Gag’s achievements, but the opposer has a much longer track record. Aung San Suu Kyi has been a political prisoner for 20 years for criticizing her government by helping to initiate the National League for Democracy. She was placed under house arrest, and given the option to leave the country to be free, she refused that option and instead worked from her home to democratize her home country. She was liberated in November 2010 and now holds a seat at Burmese parliament. So, the voting ends tonight, and the winner is announced tomorrow, the results are dead-even as of now. Who will it be? Vote here, and you can vote as many times as you want.
