Time For An Explanation!

Well,Time magazine has named their Person of the Year and the winner is-George W.Bush.
Yes the man that is disliked by the majority of Europe and a significant portion of his own people has scooped the award for the second time after winning re-election and "reshaping the rules of politics to fit his 10-gallon-hat leadership style"-referring to his cowboy image.
Bush joins six other US presidents who won the award twice:Truman,Eisenhower,Johnson,Nixon,Reagan and Clinton.

I must say I'm disappointed to see he has won the award.OK he won his election but surely there must have been someone else who deserved the award more?Surely?
I don't think this award will make much difference to his image worldwide however.
Other notable winners of Time magazine's Person of the Year award were people such as Adolf Hitler who got the award in 1938 and Joseph Stalin who,like Bush,scooped the award twice in1938 and again in 1942.
