Vanity Fair Gets Substantial Access to President Obama

Vanity Fair’s October issue is getting a lot of buzz because of an article being penned by Moneyball author, Michael Lewis. According to The New York Times, Lewis was granted “extensive access” to President Barack Obama for the piece, something that is fairly rare, especially when you consider the timing of the article.

No one is quite sure what Lewis’ piece is going to focus on, though sources told the Times it will touch on leadership.

If Lewis really did get atypical access to Obama, the article will be worth checking out. Maybe we’ll even finally hear what kind of treat Bo likes best.
