Ben Bernanke = Time’s Person of the Year (?!)

Yeah, I’m not kidding.

A bald man with a gray beard and tired eyes is sitting in his oversize Washington office, talking about the economy. He doesn’t have a commanding presence. He isn’t a mesmerizing speaker. He has none of the look-at-me swagger or listen-to-me charisma so common among men with oversize Washington offices. His arguments aren’t partisan or ideological; they’re methodical, grounded in data and the latest academic literature.

Oh, and George W. Bush made the cut in 2000. In conclusion, I’m just not exactly sure who Bernanke is more aligned with… Stalin or Ghandi?
