Barack Obama Will Be 2008 Time Person Of The Year

December 11, 2008

Every year I have fun making a prediction about the person who will be selected as Time Person of the Year.  This year there is no suspense.  And for good reason.

Obviously Barack Obama, the first African-American President ever elected, will grace the cover that will be published later this month.   In my estimation, the larger issue of the political process will need to be strongly featured.  Everything from how the first female candidate for the White House almost became the Democratic nominee, to the amazing ability of raising cash through the internet, along with the breathless excitement of  millions will make this edition a great read.  And a collectors item!

I just hope next year there is no clear cut choice for the cover, and making this prediction will be a guessing game again.

But I am pleased that our next President will be this years selection.
