Time magazine's Person of the Year is President Barack Obama.
Obama was picked for the title by besting a Pakistani teen activist blogger who survived an assassination attempt (Malala Yousafzai), the head of the world's most valuable company (Apple CEO Tim Cook), another country's president (Egypt's Mohammed Morsi) and the potent combination of a past U.S. president and possible future one (the Clintons).
Time's managing editor Rick Stengel announced the editors' selection on the "Today" show Wednesday and explained what earned Obama the nod.
