NEW YORK, NY — U.S. President Barack Obama has been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year.

The magazine noted that the president “will take the oath on Jan. 20 as the first Democrat in more than 75 years to get a majority of the popular vote twice.”

“Only five other Presidents have done that in all of U.S. history.”

President Obama’s reelection is credited by Time as a generational shift: “He got 71% of Latinos, 93% of blacks, 73% of Asians and 60% of those under 30.”
