Obama Election Newspapers - Top 6 Front Pages


Visitors: 223

Obama election newspapers were selling out at newsstands across the United States on the day after Barack Obama's historic presidential victory. They were selling so fast that newspapers had to keep going back and cranking up the presses again to print more and more. And online, some papers were fetching hundreds of dollars each at auction.

But let's cut through the hype. Which Obama front pages from November 5, 2008 are the best of the bunch? Here are the top 6:

1. The New York Times. So bold that only one word was necessary as a headline: “Obama. " It's an elegant, clean front page from the country's most respected newspaper. No wonder everyone wants to get their hands on one.

2. The Hartford Courant. These guys went with a wraparound photo of the Obama family that actually covered two whole pages, not just one.

3. The Times-Picayune. Obama's mug appeared alongside the 43 previous U. S. presidents. Gee, which face is different from the rest? It's a genius way to illustrate the changing of the guard.

4. News & Record. Full-page photo of the president-elect with reverse type screaming, “Obama Triumphs. " It's bold and beautiful.

5. The Star Ledger. Sometimes a headline can say it all: “Obama Reaches the Mountaintop" reminds us of King's dream. This is a front page that truly seizes the historic moment.

6. Charleston Daily Mail. This West Virginia newspaper also goes with a one word headline, but not “Obama. " Instead, it posits the word “Change" in great big white type behind the president-elect's smiling face.

These Obama victory newspapers are truly among the best of the bunch. Which ones are your favorites?
