Time names Obama person of the year



With his historic election to the presidency, Barack Obama must have been a lock for Time’s person of the year. Today the newsweekly made it official.

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Gov. Sarah Palin and Chinese director Zhang Yimou were runners-up.

I know what you’re thinking: This is not a religion story. True. But with how much religion dominated the presidential election, particularly when it was related to Obama and Palin, this was certainly worth making note of.
