President Barack Obama Takes Rolling Stone Cover Once Again

Written By David D'Angelo on Friday, August 7, 2009 | 8/07/2009

President Barack Obama is again on the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine Issue 1085, this time however he is being scrutinized. The main caption on the page is "OBAMA SO FAR". The art work of the cover is done by the same artist which made the phenomenal Obama iconic poster used in his campaign and which also caught the attention of the world.

Artist Shepard Fairey, whose iconic HOPE campaign poster of Barack Obama was a global sensation, says when asked of the new art work he made, "It's one thing to be running for president and it's another to be President and I think this new illustration that I did hopefully captures the complexity and the weight of his new role,"

Rolling Stone editors said that for this issue they sat down in their New York offices with three of America's leading political observers. David Gergen, a senior political analyst for CNN and director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School, served in the White Houses of Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton. Paul Krugman, a New York Times columnist and professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, won the 2008 Nobel Prize in economics. Michael Moore is the Academy Award-winning director of Bowling for Columbine and Sicko; his new film, Capitalism: A Love Story, will premiere on October 2nd.

So will Obama measure up to the expectations? Well what you have to really do is buy a copy of the magazine and see how the analysts sees it.
