Chalk up another non-political publication getting exclusive access to the commander in chief.
After ESPN, Entertainment Tonight and People all scored their own exclusives, Obama reached out to his fashion-conscience friends at Glamour magazine.
Glamour pitched them on a big audience, said Washington editor Linda Kramer Jenning. “There’s a lot of attention being paid to young, women voters,” Jenning said. “That’s the calling card that opens the door.” It took five months to lock down some face time.
Jenning said Leive asked the President about women’s health care, among other topics, even though the interview took place before the recent uproar over the antediluvian comments about rape by Missouri congressman Todd Akin.
It’s unclear as to what section Glamour might assign Obama’s interview to — fashion or beauty? Perhaps celeb gossip?
I think we should propose some questions for Glamour to ask President Obama. I’ll get this ball rolling, but I expect you to leave your best questions in the comments!
Who are you wearing?
Mr. President, how old is TOO old for a speedo?
How do you unwind: Solo shopping trip or manis/pedis with your girlfriends?
Hillary’s pantsuits: Hit or Miss?
