    Bush named Time Person of the Year

    http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/04bush.html

    The magazine gives the honor to the person who had the greatest impact, good or bad, over the year
    The magazine's editors tapped Bush "for sharpening the debate until the choices bled, for reframing reality to match his design, for gambling his fortunes-- and ours-- on his faith in the power of leadership."

    After a grueling campaign, Bush remains a polarizing figure in America and around the world, and that's part of the reason he earned the magazine's honor, said Managing Editor Jim Kelly.

    "Many, many Americans deeply wish he had not won," Kelly said in a telephone interview. "And yet he did."

    Personally, I think we could have used a break from politics. I would have voted for either
    Janet Jackson
    The Boston Redsox
    Ron Artess
    Martha Stewart
    Victor Conte
    Mel Gibson
    Dan Rather

    It still doesn't change the fact that my crap is more intelligent than our President though.

    All presidents since FDR have gotten Person Of The Year once for each term. Must be some sort of tradition.
