I guess when you're up against one of the fastest people in the world, the President of the United States, the person trying to head up ending the recession, and the Speaker of the House, you have some tough competition when it comes to "Person of the Year," according to CNN International.
Today, Time Magazine has announced Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke as its 2009 "Person of the Year." The list of finalists included Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, President Obama, House Speaker Pelosi, and Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Time deemed Bernanke, "the most powerful nerd on the planet."
"The story of the year was a weak economy that could have been much, much weaker. Thank the man who runs the Federal Reserve, our mild-mannered economic overlord," said the article.
