Felsenthal shared that this is the first time that a vice president has been named a “Person of the Year,” by Time, despite all elected president’s since Franklin D. Roosevelt receiving the honor.
“Every elected President since FDR has at some point during his term been a Person of the Year, nearly a dozen of those in a presidential election year,” he said. “This is the first time we have included a Vice President.”
