Probably morning: There is no absolute good answer. If work-out doesn't interfere with your sleep patterns, then working out at night is just as fine as in the morning or during the day.

Either: As doctors we are pleased when our patients work out at all! but seriously what is important is regular exercise. A nice review of the subject can be found at: http://walking.About.Com/od/fitness/a/besttimeex.Htm.
