It was a tremendous year for Barack Obama. He was elected President, named Time's Person of the Year and even picked as CitizenSugar readers' favorite newsmaker of 2008.
Like the presidential election, it wasn't even a close call. Obama brought in 56 percent of the vote, far ahead of Sarah Palin, who received 17 percent of the vote, and Olympic golden boy Michael Phelps, who received 12 percent of the vote.
