Reader’s Digest Takes a Page From Obama’s Campaign, and Who Landed on More Magazine Covers…Obama or McCain?

July 29, 2008

In yet another magazine example of offering different single copy covers in different areas of the country, Reader’s Digest in its August issue took the Obama’s campaign slogan “Yes, You Can” and used it on one of the two covers being sold on the newsstands. I wish I can say the other cover is a page from the McCain’s campaign, but by its looks I doubt that.
Which brings me to a completely different academic topic, have you noticed how many covers Senator Obama has been on compared with Senator McCain. It will make a nice academic study to compare the two senators and the number of times they have appeared on magazine covers. Whether on the cover of American magazines or European magazines, my theory is that Senator Obama has appeared on more magazine covers than Senator McCain. It is just a hypothesis for now, but I bet you it will not be hard to accept after some research. A graduate student waiting in the wings for a master’s thesis topic can take this challenge and start the research. Please keep me posted, or just let me know whether you agree with my hypothesis or not…
