Poll of the Week:

The Most- Fascinating Person

In Barbara Walters's annual, much-hyped ABC TV special devoted to the year's 10 most-fascinating people - a list dominated by magazine-cover-friendly celebrities such as Sandra Bullock and Justin Bieber - the newswoman declared that Gen. David Petraeus, lead commander of the war in Afghanistan, is the most-fascinating person of 2010. We asked our readers whether they agree with that assessment. The results, via our thoroughly unscientific online poll:

58%

Walters's annual list fails to fascinate me enough to care who she chose.

30%

Yes, I think he has an important job and is an interesting man.

8%

It should have been Lady Gaga. 7.3 million Twitter followers can't be wrong!

4%

She should have chosen someone as celebrity-oriented as the rest of the people on the list.
