Writing that "after four of the most challenging years in the nation's history, his chance to leave office as a great president who was able to face crises and build a new majority coalition remains within reach," Time magazine has named President Obama its "person of the year."

The others on Time's "short list" were:

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager who was shot and critically wounded because she has spoken out against the Taliban's campaign to stop girls from being educated.

Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.

Fabiola Gianotti, one of the head scientists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
