President Barack Obama has been named Time's Person of the Year for 2012.


The selection was announced Wednesday on NBC's Today show.


The short list for the honor included Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager who was shot in the head for advocating for girls' education.


It also included Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and Bill and Hillary Clinton.


Obama also received the honor in 2008, when he was President-elect.


Last year, The Protester got the honor.


Time's Person of the Year is the person or thing that has most influenced the culture and the news during the past year for good or for ill. In 2010, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg received the honor.
