Joe Biden and Kamala Harris named Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2020

One year ago today, I posted Time names Greta Thunberg Person of the Year for 2019. Today, it's this year's honoree's turn. Watch Time Magazine present TIME Person Of The Year: Joe Biden And Kamala Harris.

The Biden-Harris ticket represents something historic.
Person of the Year is not just about the year that was, but about where we’re headed.
Congratulations to Biden and Harris, but their being named came as a bit of a surprise after watching TIME Magazine Person Of The Year Shortlist Revealed Exclusively On TODAY yesterday morning.

Edward Felsenthal, editor-in-chief of TIME, joins TODAY with an exclusive look at the magazine’s shortlist for its Person of the Year: President-elect Joe Biden, President Trump, the movement for racial justice, and Dr. Anthony Fauci and the frontline health workers. “It’s been a really challenging year to make this call,” Felsenthal says.
Out of all the candidates, I would have picked Dr. Anthony Fauci and the frontline health workers for 2020's people of the year. Time itself set the precedent when the magazine named The Ebola Fighters as The Person of the Year for 2014. Frontline health care workers didn't come away empty-handed, as they were just named Guardians of the Year, which I think is appropriate. I guess they couldn't be both Person and Guardian. I'll have more on them along with Athlete of the Year and Entertainer of the Year over the weekend. Congratulations to all the honorees and stay tuned to all my readers.
