President Barack Obama has been named Time's Person of the Year.

"He's basically the beneficiary and the author of a kind of New America, a new demographic, a new cultural America that he is now the symbol of," editor Richard Stengel said on Wednesday morning's Today show.

This is the second time that Obama has earned the magazine's title. He was named the Person of the Year in 2008 after becoming the first African-American elected president
