Time Magazine's Person of the Year

I have not blogged about Mr Obama for a few weeks now, mainly due to the fact that I felt that there wasn't much more to say until after the New Year when he will be become 44th president of the United States.

This will be a hugely exiting moment in history for the American people.

But today, Obama was voted by Time magazine as the Person of the Year.

The US magazine has praised Obama "for having the confidence to sketch an ambitious future in a gloomy hour".

Time has selected a Person of the Year since 1927. Although they choose from a man, woman or a group of people, they have said that Obama was inevitably going to be the favourite this year.

Obama's success has genuinely been visible in London. For me, he has given hope to black men that they can achieve anything that they want.

He will be by January 2009 one of the most powerful men in the world, proving to us all that anything is possible.
