When I got our Newsweek this week, I took a look a the cover and thought something looked very familiar. A quick google image search confirmed it.

obama kennedy

Do you think the art director told the photographer, “I want that Jackie look. You know the one—the Time magazine cover look.”

Has the media’s comparison of the Obamas to the Kennedys gotten a little out of hand or is this just a crazy coincidence?

Actually, the cover is a full length photo of Michelle, whose complete outfit looks a lot like this one. I think the picture inside looks a little more like her own style.

    Hi Julie, it was fun to meet you the other night!

    I just saw a “report” about that very thing on one of the news shows, with several side by side photos comparing them!
