Well, we can't turn Barack Obama into Corbin Bleu and we can't make Hillary Clinton into Vanessa Hudgens, but really, do we need another glossy magazine article about John Edwards? The magazine business says... a-yup.
Rolling Stone has a major profile of Sen. Edwards this month, and the editors saw fit to place the article teaser right next to a beefcake photo of Zac Efron, who stars in Disney's High School Musical franchise. Apparently, Mr. Efron is the tween it boy of the moment.
That makes three the number of magazines that have run major profiles of John Edwards. Men's Vogue got Annie Leibovitz to photograph Edwards and the author rhapsodized about his charms and rugged populism.
Perhaps uncomfortably, given Elizabeth Edwards's recent remarks about her husband's race, Esquire wonders whether a white guy can still be elected president.
Now comes Rolling Stone. These are MSM pubs, really.
Perhaps Hillary Clinton can hold up a picture of the Rolling Stone at the next debate and say that she wouldn't dare let a magazine call her a "liberal" on the cover. And come to think of it. Zac Efron does look a little like a young Johnny E.
