No surprise that Time’s Person of the Year is Barack Obama, the incoming 44th president of the United States and the first African-American to hold the job. It’s difficult to think of a bigger newsmaker than Obama, with the possible exception of some nameless Wall Street crook. Time’s runners-up were Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Zhang Yimou, the filmmaker behind the Beijing Olympics’ amazing opening ceremonies. Apparently when Time asked for public nominations via YouTube, the biggest response came from supporters of Ron Paul. Maybe next year.
Any forecasts for 2009?
