Writer Stengel is demented.  O is author of a New America??    

The choice is meaningless anyway.  Winners of presidential elections are generally that years Person of the Year.  W was selected in 2000 and 2004.  Just sayin'.

On the radio I heard it was because he was the first Democrat to be re-elected President in decades. My first thought was "Clinton was a Republican?"

@jbeee maybe it means reelected with majority. Meaning=more than 50% of the votes.
