Time magazine has named President-elect Barack Obama its “person of the year.”

As sick as I am of Obamania — at this point can Obama possibly live up to all of the hype? — Repugnican Sarah Palin-Quayle apparently was on Time’s short list for the designation. (Whew! You betcha!)

Time’s person of the year, by the way, as I understand it, is not a statement that the person is great, but that the person has been influential. Past Time magazine persons of the year have included Adolf Hitler, Newt Gingrich and George W. Bush, for instance, as well as Gandhi, FDR and MLK.
