Hillarack: All About Our Cover

We've been
getting a lot of questions about our cover art for our new
issue
, which was done by artist Nancy Burson. Burson
is best known for her pioneering work in "morphing technology", which has
helped law enforcement officials to find missing children by aging their faces.
She is also the creator of the Human Race Machine, which
allows people to view themselves as a different race (and was featured on "Oprah," the truly
bizarre results of which you can see here). For The New Republic, Burson used her
morphing techniques to blend together Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to
create an arresting image that, love it or hate it, has been provoking some
strong reactions.
Commenters: What do you think of it?
