Taking a cue from Time magazine, which today made news with the surprising choice of Barack Obama as its ‘Person of the Year,’ this site will be announcing a “Progressive Person of the Year.”
Our selection will be just as much of a huge shocker as Time’s. In other words, to make any other choice would land one in the museum of cosmic doofusry. This is the person who has contributed most to the advancement of progressive ideas and positions into the public sphere during the past year.
So, who is it? Guess in comments.
Needless hint: It’s an American.
Update: Winner announced on 1/1/2009
