Obama on the Hotlist

By Phoebe Connelly
Having saturated the usual outlets, Barack Obama hits big time with a mention on the Elle "Hotlist":

"He's the It Candidate of 2004. Illinois twentysomethings throw fundraisers for their would-be Democratic U.S. senator, Bill Bradley has appeared with him [...] Obama, 42, campaigns with the charismatic zeal of the community organizer he once was [...] If Obama wins, he'll be the nation's most prominent elected African-American politician --
and it will be only a matter of time before people are talking him up for an even higher office."

Fashion magazines?! Who can stop him now?
