Time just revealed its person of the year, and here's a hint: It's not the same as the people's choice, Bernie Sanders.
Time chose German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has a long list of political accomplishments, including being Germany's first female chancellor. And she only got into politics at age 35.
It's been a big year for Merkel, one which included wrangling Vladimir Putin on Ukraine, helping refugees from the Middle East and not budging on Greece's economic crisis. But she also has opponents on almost all of those issues. (Video via Channel 4)
