TIME Magazine's Person of the Year

Monday, December 20, 2004

TIME made President Bush the 'Person of the Year' for 2004, the second in 4 years as Bush was also TIME’s choice in 2000 after winning the presidential election despite losing the popular vote. This year, TIME chose Bush "for sticking to his guns (literally and figuratively), for reshaping the rules of politics to fit his 10-gallon-hat leadership style and for persuading a majority of voters this time around that he deserved to be in the White House for another four years,” Jim Kelly wrote in the magazine. :P

Another note of interest, Kelly said he and his staff debated giving the award to others including Karl Rove, the president’s influential political adviser, and filmmakers Michael Moore and Mel Gibson.

Oh well, some will be pleased and some will sighh..

Quote of the Day:
“The person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year, for better or for worse,” - Jim Kelly, TIME magazine's managing editor on "Man Of The Year" winner.
