At this point we all know the rap on Barack Obama: he's inspiring, he gives good speeches, he's bigger on rhetoric than policy specifics. What somehow doesn't get mentioned much is that he's the most photogenic person in the world. Every time he wins something they show a photo of him, and I always think, Huh, why are they using a stock photo provided by the campaign? and it always turns out to have been taken fifteen minutes earlier. If this blog had enough readers to take advantage of many-to-many crowdsourcing web2.0 you-are-Time's-Person-of-the-Year dynamics, I would start a contest for people to send in the worst photo of Barack Obama they can find. I bet the winning shot would still make him look like a young god.
