Adding to asp:DropDownList manuallly not working

I am getting this message:

System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListItemCollection must have items of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListItem'. 'ListItem' is of type 'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl'.

My aspx code is:

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlPerson" ToolTip="" runat="server" >
<ListItem value="0">[Select Person]</ListItem>
<ListItem value="1">tfstom2</ListItem>
<ListItem value="2">cspear</ListItem>

Why is it getting the ListItem from the other namespace? This is a normal .aspx page.
