Barack Obama is chosen as the "Person of The Year" for 2007 merely because he has come so far in such a relatively short period of time. He has proven himself to be a master organizer who has managed to raise more funds than any other presidential candidate in either party through the small donation of 20 or 30 dollars. The miracle of his campaign is that he has not made an issue of being the only serious African-American candidate. As a result he is appealing to all Democrats regardless of race , winning primaries in states like Idaho, Iowa and Nebraska that have relatively small communities of African-Americans if any. He has connected with the youth of the United States, promising them something "new" On various occasions I have heard his opponents (McCain, Bloomberg, Clinton) say you can't become President with so called "happy talk" but to this point he is proving them wrong. The same detractors point to his "lack of experience" but the public is well aware of the senators and congresspersons who have little passed legislation to go along with their "experience". It is apparent that the country wants to go in another direction and people are not going continue the failed policies of the seasoned politicians of both parties who continue to extract funds that should be going towards education, health care and protecting the environment instead to a senseless, unjustified and unwinnable war. My second choice was Congressman Keith Ellison who overcame religious bigotry to triumph in Minnesota.
