On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Barack Obama as their Person of the Year.
“For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union, Barack Obama is TIME's 2012 Person of the Year,” Time managing editor Richard Stengel explained in his note to readers.
The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including Obama, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle.
But who cares about the same-old, same-old? Who is Milbrae’s Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse?”
