How about Saul Alinsky?
Seriously, Obama has been the man of the year in 2009, nothwithstanding that his actions have been abominable. But you must admit, the guy has been inescapable in the national consciousness -- for cryin' out loud, little Johnny and Janie can't even get through day one of Kindergarten without a televised visit from Uncle Barry.
The damage that Obama has done to law, liberty and prosperity and national power in America, while the Earth has been taking a single turn around the Sun, will take decades to undo, if it can be undone at all, and if anyone has the vision and the fortitude to try.
In my book, that makes Obama Man of the Year, as well as Disgrace of the Year.
