Obama: a picture perfect President?
No surprise in Time's decision I suppose given the very obvious impact the man has made - in fact a real no-brainer.
That image acts as a lead into a Time gallery of just some of the 100,000 or so images of Obama that have been posted on the image sharing website Flickr. Team Obama's skilful use of the web - and Facebook in particular - was also something the Panorama web team looked at last year.
As for the Panorama programme, two films have been made on the man himself - Obama and the Pitbull as the race for the Presidency reached its climax and Is America Ready For A Black President? which looked at the problems Obama would have to overcome to even receive the Democratic Party's nomination, let alone win the Presidency. Overcome of course, he did.
