Honoring Obama
Your article naming President-elect Barack Obama as Person of the Year was insightful, interesting and original [Dec. 29]. After two elections in which it seemed the American people cast their vote for the guy they'd most like to have a beer with, your article illustrated why we as a country voted a different way this time. I'm proud not because we elected an African American but because we finally elected the smartest guy in the room.
