According to CNN, explaining Time's choice, Executive Editor Richard Stengel cited Obama 'for finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union'.

Such accolades and results seemed improbable a year ago when Obama's approval rating hovered in the low 40s while unemployment was 8.5 percent.

History showed that it was rare, if not unprecedented, for an incumbent to win re-election with such figures, the report added.
