Time Magazine´s Person of the Year 2012

Time Magazine on Wednesday, December 19, named the recently re-elected US President Barack Obama as its person of the year for 2012 - the second time it has awarded him this honor.

The American news magazine put Obama on its cover and said he deserved the accolade as "the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America."

The magazine noted that Obama was the first American president since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win more than 50 percent of the vote in two straight elections.
