CBS | Shocker: Obama’s is Time’s "Person of the Year" again





Four years after he first won the award as president-elect in 2008, President Obama has again been named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2012.

Time’s short list included Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager who was murdered for advocating girls’ education.

Time Editor Rick Stengel, announcing the selection on NBC this morning, explained, "We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America."
