    Barack Obama is usually quite good at selling magazines, boosting sales for titles ranging from Men's Vogue to Us Weekly to The New Yorker. But this week's wholesome cover photo of the Obama family was a bust for People, which sold fewer copies of this week's issue than its normal newsstand average.
