The Obama Inaugural Coverage

Look, I get that it is historic, but it has become pornographic. All the reporters come back from breaks flushed and breathing heavy. Good grief.

The other night on Hannity, when Sean pointed out that Barack Obama had been on the cover of Time magazine 14 times, Lanny Davis rebutted that Nixon had been on 26 times. Actually, Nixon had been on the cover 49 times. But those 49 times spanned 1952-1994 for an average of about 1 per year.

Obama has been on Time 14 times in the past year, a feat Nixon did not accomplish even during Watergate.

Consider this an open thread.
