As the convention pivots, turning its attention to the nominee, I'm concerned in advance as to how the traditional media will frame (poor choice of words, I hope) Barack Obama. If the cover of TIME's convention preview is any indication, however, we're in trouble. (By the way, I have examples in hand of three more convention-related publication covers that will really trouble you. I just need to find a scanner from the middle of the media/blogging beehive I'm in to bring them to you.)
