Obama on the Hotlist

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?
