What person or group of people do you think best represents 2020?
Do you agree with Time magazine’s selection of President-elect Joseph R. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as its persons of the year? Would you have made a different selection from the list of finalists, which included frontline health care workers along with Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the racial justice movement and President Trump?
In “Biden and Harris Are Time’s Persons of the Year for 2020,” Neil Vigdor writes about Time magazine’s selection:
Time magazine on Thursday named President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as its persons of the year, citing the weight of the pandemic and racial injustice that will be shouldered by the history-making Democratic ticket.
Mr. Biden, 78, the former vice president under President Barack Obama, and Ms. Harris, 56, a U.S. senator from California who became the first Black woman and the first Indian-American elected to the vice presidency, will appear side by side in a portrait on the magazine’s cover on Dec. 21.
They edged out frontline health care workers (along with the nation’s leading infectious-disease expert, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci), the racial justice movement and President Trump for the distinction.
