Knock me down with a feather: Time names Obama Person of the Year

In an announcement that surprises absolutely no-one, Time magazine names Barack Obama as its Person of the Year.

The main surprise is their given reasoning:

As Obama has moved with unprecedented speed to build an Administration that would bolster the confidence of a shaken world, his flash and dazzle have faded into the background. In the waning days of his extraordinary year and on the cusp of his presidency, what now seems most salient about Obama is the opposite of flashy, the antithesis of rhetoric: he gets things done. He is a man about his business — a Mr. Fix It going to Washington.

OTOH I'm pretty sure that his inspirational and transformational election didn't hurt either.

Congratulations Mr. President-Elect.
