Mr. Obama was awarded the title “for having the confidence to sketch an ambitious future in a gloomy hour,” said the US-based magazine.

It said he showed “the competence that makes Americans hopeful he might pull it off.”

Recent winner have included Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, the American Soldier, and the online public.

Time told readers it was “unlikely that you were surprised to Mr. Obama’s face on the cover.”

“He has come to dominate the public sphere so completely that it beggars belief to recall half the people in America had never heard of him two years ago.”

“He hit the American scene like a thunderclap, upended politics, shattered decades of conventional wisdom and overcame centuries of the social pecking order.”

BBC

 

President-elect Barack Obama is a beacon of light and breath of fresh air at a time when America needed it the most.  He has stirred the optimist in all of us and reminds of what America has always been thought, the last great hope.  He has not only united Americans, he has inspired people around the world, reminding us that we are all one.  Barack Obama, thus far, has proven to be a leader among men.
