Obama tells Vibe readers 'I need you' in letter

Barack Obama has a message for the readers of Vibe: "I need you."
In a letter to be published in the November issue, the Democratic presidential candidate is given a page to address the readers of the urban music monthly magazine. In it, Obama urges them to register to vote, saying, "We are at a defining moment in our history."
"I am running for president to take this country in a new direction. But I can't do it alone. I need you," the letter reads. "Whether it's the first time, or the first time in a long time, I need you to register and vote on November 4."
Obama is featured on the cover of the magazine for the second time — the first was for the September 2007 issue. He also gets the endorsement of the magazine, the first presidential endorsement ever made by Vibe.

wow - this looks like a great issue to kick off your magazine collection with black subjects :) i think i'll pick this one up too.

btw i love the idea of collecting mags with people of colour on the front...i started collecting vintage mags (though i haven't added to it in a while) and have the 1969(or is it 72) issue of playboy that featured the first ever black woman on the cover! psyched when i found it for under $10 considering it is worth much more :) think i'll start collecting again
