For a decade straight, from 2004-13, this website named an American of the Year.
With my writing emphasis switching to baseball over the last two years or so, that tradition was tabled.
Baseball is still my primary writing subject. But here at my home website, I'll be getting back to covering political, social, spiritual and other issues once again in the coming weeks and months.
Over the course of those first ten years honoring an American of the Year, nine different men were honored, as well as one heroic group of them. The complete list is available at the end of this piece.
Now, for the first time, a woman is receiving the honor. And this particular woman is a genuine surprise, because when this year began, frankly, I had never heard of her.
In 2016, Kellyanne Conway became the first woman in the history of American politics to run a winning U.S. Presidential campaign.
She did it in basically two and a half months, not taking over as the head of Donald Trump's campaign until August 17, at which point the possibility of his election was very much in doubt.
