Barack Covers VIBE+Joe Brings The Foolishness+Jazmine Sullivan Busts The Charts

VIBE magazine announces its November 2008 cover today with Barack Obama, marking the first time in history that the leading lifestyle publication has ever formally endorsed a Presidential nominee. In the issue, Editor-in-Chief Danyel Smith writes, "…I am clear about what must be done. The staff is behind me. This is a formal endorsement, by VIBE magazine, of Senator Barack Obama…We built hip hop from nothing to something. We can do anything." This historic collector's edition also marks the second time that VIBE has placed the Senator of Illinois on its cover after being the first music magazine to do so in September 2007. In an unprecedented one-page letter exclusive to VIBE readers, Obama also calls out today's youth, urging them to take a stand and vote for change. He writes, "Dear VIBE Readers…I am running for President to take this country in a new direction. But I can't do it alone. I need you. Whether it's the first time, or the first time in a long time, I need you to register and vote on November 4th." In other political news, I have seriously lost almost all respect for Joe.  Apparently, a while back, Joe was toting the fact that he is not a registered voter. And he had no intentions of doing so. So he hit up the Tom Joyner Morning Show a couple weeks ago and confirmed this. He said he had no good reason he wasn't registered, but he "knows Obama is going to win hands down" and O didn't need his vote. *blank stare* He went on to say he would register only because Tom twisted his arm to, and he thought he could vote online. This is a grown ass man. I'm done. Listen to the audio here. UPDATE: Joe went on the Wendy Williams show last week and said he registered right after the Tom Joyner show and is now recruiting others to do the same.
