Sen. Lugar beats Obama at the polls

It was a close race, but Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) beat out President Barack Obama Monday in an online vote for the the 2009 Arms Control Person of the Year.

The poll was conducted by the Arms Control Association, and while just under 1,000 people cast ballots, the prize recognizes Lugar's well-documented, longtime advocacy on arms control issues.

The press release also featured a great photo of the senator in a fur hat with a briefcase bomb.
