Barack Obama Covers People Magazine

Barack Obama Covers People Magazine

Sen. Barack Obama takes the cover of People magazine’s latest issue.

Joining the 46-year-old Democratic presidential candidate on the cover is his wife Michelle, 43, and his two daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7. Here’s a little sneak peek:

Barack‘s daughters get a $1 per week allowance from Dad for doing their chores, like setting and clearing the dinner table.
– The kids receive no birthday or Christmas presents from Mom and Dad, who spend “hundreds” on birthday slumber parties and, as Barack puts it, “want to teach some limits.”

Also featured on this week’s cover is the debut of former Pregnant Man’s baby girl, Susan Juliette.

“She’s so precious, I just can’t stop staring at her,” Thomas Beatie tells People in his first interview since he and wife Nancy returned home. “Just holding her is the best feeling in the world.”

  • Amanda

    sucks to be his children!

  • Nicole

    No presents on their birthdays? Why not just cut out some of the freaking PARTIES!!!

  • Geethisisfair

    I look forward to the McCain family photos. otherwise, I would think People Magazine is trying to tell and other Americans to vote for their elitist candidate. That would make my new People Magazine my last!

    McCain 2008!!!

  • Linda

    Holy PR.

  • Erin

    i can’t believe Barack doesn’t buy his kids presents for Christmas or even their birthdays! That kinda makes him seem like an ass..

  • John

    Empty suit who is full of himself. Never understood the media hype, he is just another politician.

    I love seeing a man being a father and husband to his family

  • nicole

    yea so his wife’s name is MICHELLE OBAMA (NEE Robinson). let’s not play games

    How funny that some uninformed people still want to label Barack as an elitist when his family was the poorest one in the race and had the less privileges growing up.

  • brooke

    this is ridiculous. all of it.

  • jen

    I agree #11. When does John McCain get his cover?
    Sure the media is not biased…

  • vic

    the reason why his not buying them presents is to teach them some limits its not like he said his never going to buy them presents. my dad did the same thing to me and my brother just to show us how other poor kids in the world never get presents, so that when we do we can highly appreciate theme, thats his whole point people need to leave OBAMA alone racist people im white and i love obama and black people weather you like it or not obama will be president and black people will shine like never before.

  • Kate

    The reason why Obama gets so much press in the first place is because people WANT to read about him. He’s much more interesting than McCain, and that’s why nobody would care about a McCain cover.

    I love them. OBAMA 2008

  • tia

    ohhhhh such a cute family!!! i really hope he wins!

  • Hilary

    OBAMA 08!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • S

    Obama has some great pr people. He is on the cover of every magazine. There is a definitely a media bias against McCain.

  • well

    The biased coverage of this candidate over all others sickens me. I am a Democrat but do not want to vote for him. All the biased coverage makes me want to do anything but vote for him.

  • sillyme

    What an effing hypocrite Obama is. He made such a big deal of saying he would keep his daughters out of the spotlight, after Access Hollywood, and now here the girls are on the cover of People. I guess it’s true that he’ll do anything he needs to if it will think it will get him elected. I like Obama, but I really feel he’s being forced down our throats because the media wants a black president.

  • kidi

    Well, I’m from Illinois and I love the Obama family. How great it will be to have a president who is smart, well-spoken, and not a drunken cokehead warmongering diot who got where he is on family money and connections. Go Barack!

  • Halli

    #17 Its because these are the same small minded dependent people who need to be told what to believe in and what to say. They eat up what they hear on talk-radio and television ads. Its hilarious seeing McCain and at the time, Hilary, use the buzz word ‘elitist’ as if people don’t know what they’re doing. A sucker is born every minute.

  • sasha

    haha, well said kidi.

    The “elitist” thing drives me crazy. This is the guy who wants to get cheap health insurance and good public education for EVERYONE, not just his rich buddies.

    Compare that to the jackass who starts a massive war on behalf of his oil buddies that costs $300 million PER DAY and fought by poor kids who can’t afford college otherwise. And who gives massive tax breaks to the top 1% of the country, and a measly $600 to the poor folks.

    Now, who’s the elitist?? And you know McCain is just another Bush…

  • youwillmissme

    Won’t vote for him!

  • eddie

    parties are much more memorable gifts than actual things. i remember all the parties my parents threw for me, but few of the actual gifts. moderation does not make one an ass.

    and, maybe this article for People was shot and written before obama’s family spotlight moratorium, sillyme.

    $1 a week allowance?? No Christmas presents?? Whateva, I do care about his personal life, I need someone to run this country.

  • scout

    Michelle is way ugly and i hate the way she fist bumps…very presidential

  • kaylee

    everyone i noe in california is voting for him! :)

  • Ava

    Get the feeling that the media is forcing Obama and his wife down our throats because they want a black President no matter that this guy is a media creation with no real creaditals to be President, everything about Obama is hype, is it not enough that they use hype to sell everything else now they want to use the Presidency as a PR game , God I hope people are smart enough to see through Obama and his PR team.

  • jonathan bodack

    Interesting, etc.

  • jonathan bodack

    Who cares about Barack Obama or his stupid-ass-wife, Michelle Robinson Obama, etc.?

  • sam

    I can’t even look at his wife that how much she makes me sick. The media bias is scary how far they’ll go to get this guy in the White House it feels like we live in Russia, every where every day the same force feeding of a politician until everyone starts thinking Obama is God like they do in Russia with Putin.

  • victoria

    OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sam

    They don’t belong on the cover of People magazine

  • Yasmine

    i won’t vote for him.
    he sucks. seriously, he won’t make a big difference. of course people believe in what they wanna believe. McCain sucks also, but i think he fits the job better than obama.
    Black people are so funny. they will vote for him cause he’s black. haha he is not even black. he’s only HALF black.
    don’t tell me blacks vote for obama not because of his skin color. I asked my black co-worker why he’d vote for obama and he said,”it’s time for america to have a black president.”
    let me translate that. he actually meant it’s our(black people) freaking time to rule this country. very unfortunate that over 99% of the black folks vote for him think the exact same thing.

  • mary

    who ever the next president of the us is; be it obama or mccain, i dont envy him. the man will have to spend the first two years or so just undoing all the damage george bush did. first off, the new president will have to repair relationships with other countries. that no longer trust the united states.then there’s the “truth” issue. people outside the united states have spend eight years listening to all the lies coming from the white house that we no longer believe anything the united states government says.

  • Kira

    There’s so much jealousy surrounding Obama right now and it, unfortunately, makes McCain look pitiful.

    Yes, they are a beautiful and highly educated family! Both adults and their daughters are maturing before our eyes.

  • LL

    His wife is sooooo ugly. He will be the first black president and she will be the first first lady who is downright hideous.

    Oh and for the comment that said how under privilaged he was…what a freaking joke! He went to the best prestigious schools that his rich grand parents could buy.

    I’m so sick of seeing this guy.. especially nothing but this guy! McCain gets zero coverage compared to Obama.

    Not everyone out there is a democrat and not everyone out there is planning to vote for someone(Obama) just because it’s the trendy or popular thing to do.

    Most of the idiots with the Obama signs or tees don’t even know why they plan on voting for him.

    I understand he’s part of a groundbreaking presidential run and that we live in MTV times but I really hope people are educating themselves properly before the hop into that election booth.

    As for the democratic party in general, more breaks and easier doesn’t in my opinion make for progress or change. There needs to be a certain strictness, amount of rules, and order to keep things running smoothly. I really haven’t heard Obama put his foot down on any of the tough issues or say how he’s going to make any forward motion from Bush.. which is what going into the next term should always be about. I just hear how he plans to give people breaks. Big deal. Some of you will have a small amount of cash left in your pocket .. big whoop.

    Show how little you know. I am in California and will never, ever vote for any ticket he’s on. He’s a fraud. Has the experience of a nat. If he was “a typical white” man, no one would pay any attention to him. We need a president, not a star – stars are a dime a dozen.

    Nobam is going to bring our troops home…after they stop in Afganistan for a few years first. What a fool!
