So Pete Speer thinks anyone who nominates Barack Obama as their leader of the year needs to ‘sober up’.

Pete’s right, of course. Obama achieved nothing at all in 2008, apart from coming from way behind to win the most impressive electoral victory in decades, in the process of which defeating the vaunted Clinton and Republican political machines; electrifying much of the world; and running the most magnanimous and disciplined transition in living memory.

In any case, Pete may wish to cancel his subscription to TIME.
