Bush named Time's Person of 2004

President Bush is Time magazine's Person of the Year. The magazine's editors say they chose Bush for "reshaping the rules of politics to fit his ten-gallon-hat leadership style."

They credit Bush with "sharpening the debate until the choices bled," "reframing reality to match his design," and "gambling his fortunes - and ours - on his faith in the power of leadership." In an interview with the magazine, Bush attributes his re-election to his foreign policy and the wars he began in Afghanistan and Iraq. He says "the election was about the use of American influence." Bush joins six other presidents who have twice been named person of the year.

The others are Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Franklin Roosevelt was chosen three times.
