This guy has to have some sort of record of the person with the most magazine covers in the shortest amount of time. I’m talking about the president. Our president. President Barack Obama is featured on the cover of the March 2009 issue of Vanity Fair Magazine. The issue features an interview with Barack Obama’s White House team.
As America thrilled to the inauguration of its 44th president and a new First Lady, the West Wing was filling with a kaleidoscopic army of policy aces, whiz kids, and veteran advisers, all focused on the long-haul, no-drama work to which Barack has called them. These are the civilian front lines of “We the People,” photographed by Annie Leibovitz for our pages. Plus: Maureen Orth interviews the new team, and talks to White House social secretary Desirée Rogers about making Washington fun again.
