Barack Obama: 'Time' Magazine's Person of the Year 2012!

President Barack Obama has taken the prestigious title of Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2012!

The 51-year-old President re-elect was named “[for] finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.”

“He will take the oath on Jan. 20 as the first Democrat in more than 75 years to get a majority of the popular vote twice. Only five other Presidents have done that in all of U.S. history,” the magazine added about the President, who was previously named the Person of the Year in 2008.
