Grondy, I voted for the Hobbits myself. Wizards were not there--Istari could be argued to be a race, I suppose. I don't know why Nazgul are considered a race, because men they are and men they remain, however undead. But when I thought about the other choices, I remembered the opening sequence with Gandalf pulling up in front of Bilbo's door, and I thought "It has to be Hobbits, because PJ did the greatest job with them." Here's to Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Bag End, the Long Expected Party, Bilbo in Rivendell, the Council of Elrond, the trek to Mount Doom, the Crowning of Aragorn, the Grey Havens... and all the rest! Makes me want to open the book and read again, "In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit..."
