PETA has named Bill Clinton as its 2010 Person Of The Year.

According to the charity, Clinton “has worked to shed light on numerous global issues through his humanitarian efforts and his many public speaking engagements. Recently, he has taken time out of his busy schedule to promote vegan eating. Thanks to his new plant-based diet, he’s shed some pounds, decreased his risk of future heart problems, and spared the lives of many animals.”

“I live on beans, legumes, vegetables, fruit,” said the former president. “I drink a protein supplement every morning. No dairy.”

Last year’s Person of the Year honor was shared by Ellen DeGeneres and Project Runway’s Tim Gunn.
