2008 Merriam-Webster Word Of The Year

If "hypermiling" is the 2008 Oxford Word Of The Year, Merriam-Webster counters with "bailout". They define it as "a rescue from financial distress".

Other Merriam-Webster finalists were "socialist", "maverick", and "bipartisan".

Both the Oxford and the Merriam-Webster words of the year seem apt for 2008. Which do you like better?
