Hitler made here three times, Churchill four I think as well as Barrack Obama, the Beatles and Ed Sullivan.

    I go along with this trend. In Europe and Canada Putin has been major news, he invaded Crimea and Ukraine, the first European invasion since WWII...and got away with it!

    If anything, his appearance might wake up some people to the real threat in this world.
    In that case Obama got a Nobel Prize right taking the oath, so I guess the Nobel Prize means the opposite of Time's Person of the Year.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    In this case yep.

    The whole Nobel thing is political. One need only look at the 1940's, when Mahatma Ghandi was shaming the world with his peaceful revolution, the world stood in awe as his people were slaughtered by the British and yet did not retaliate. He was nominated three times and rejected because he was a "silly little man in Pajamas"...and colored.

    Anyone who thinks Obama's image making machinery was NOT hot on that is, frankly, ignorant. I suspect a few million changed hands.

    Who Is Winning TIME's Person of the Year Poll?

    On the plus side, neither Mohammad B. Hussein Obama nor Hillary "the butcher of Benghazi" Clinton is on the list.

    But then again, it's not too amazing since almost any news about them would be bad and Liberal media just doesn't report very much that is bad about them.

    Yes, in 1938. Stalin in 1939 and 1942. Khrushchev in 1957. Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979.

    Putin certainly fits in well with the above notables.
