Obama is Time person of year for second time

- +

Time magazine on Wednesday named recently re-elected US President Barack Obama as its person of the year for 2012 -- the second time it has accorded him the accolade. 

US President Barack Obama speaks during a memorial service for the victims and relatives of the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on December 16, 2012. Time magazine has named Obama as its person of the year for 2012 -- the second time it has accorded him this honor.

Obama now not only has a re-election as America's first black president and a Nobel peace prize under his belt, but he beat fancied runners-up, including brave Pakistani girls' rights activist Malala Yousafzai, to be enshrined again as Time's dominant personality of the year.
