my opinion was the deciding factor. Today Time magazine announced its Person of the Year: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
A good choice. The economy was the big story all year, of course, overshadowing (or dictating the actions of) everyone else on the list of Peep o' the Year candidates. I hope Mr. Bernanke doesn't take it the wrong way if I say I really hope he's not in the running for this honor in 2010.
