Get to Know the 2012 TIME Person of the Year

This morning, TIME revealed its Person of the Year for 2012, and the winner is... President Barack Obama. As the TIME staff explains on the website:

We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America. In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.

Congratulations to President Obama, who was contending with 8 other "short-list" candidates, including Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, both Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.
