    He was also rated its biggest winnter.

    Sarah Palin notched a very respectable and surprising showing as the runner up for biggest winner of 2009.

    Winners and losers of 2009: Barack, Sarah, Tiger and John




    Thursday, December 24, 2009

    If one were to tabulate a list of winners and losers from 2009, one thing is certain: There will be a great deal more of the latter than the former.

    Moving quickly, the big winner in 2009 was, drum roll please, Barack Obama.

    Second place: Sarah Palin.

    Hey, she goes from governor of Alaska to celebrity, bestselling author, with more copies sold than another prominent author, and suddenly becomes the personification of buzz. That she didn’t win doesn’t make her a loser, though the same can’t be said of that McCain fellow.

    ...In the search for a biggest loser, though, we’re just warming up. Forget Tiger, forget Churchill. The undisputed biggest loser has to be the one contender who entered the year with a Greek chorus of yes-people committed to blessing his every word.

    The biggest loser enjoyed fawning cover stories in magazines from Time to GQ, was a regular on late-night television, an international superstar who promised the Olympics, but in the end couldn’t deliver even a pizza.

    2009’s biggest loser? Same as its biggest winner:

    Barack Obama.

    And from a USA Today article earlier this month...

    http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-12-10-palin-book-interview_N.htm

    ...Those who admire Palin do so intensely. Since hitting the stands Nov. 17, Going Rogue has spent three weeks at No. 1 on USA TODAY's best-seller list,, matching the record for political memoirs, set by retired general Colin Powell in 1995. Publisher HarperCollins says it has gone back to the presses 13 times to keep up with demand and now has 2.8 million copies of Palin's book in print. Thousands of fans have camped out overnight, sometimes in bitter cold temperatures, for a chance to shake her hand.

    ...Palin said she wants to help her husband, Todd, a four-time Iron Dog snowmobile race champion, prepare for the 1,900-mile competition in February.

    And Palin, who talked in the book about insisting on time for a daily run during last year's campaign, said she's got an athletic quest of her own in mind. She said she "can't wait to get more miles under my belt, 'cause I do want to run another marathon."

    Her supporters hope she does, too — one that ends in 2012.

    It is interesting that the two most popular and polarizing political figures in America today are Sarah Palin and Barack Obama - perhaps simply more evidence of just how politically divided the country has become as we head into 2010...
