This is why it's OK to hate Annie Leibovitz and Vogue

Mrs. Obama's Vogue cover borrows so much from this Jackie Kennedy photo that at first I thought it had to be a joke. Or a fake.

Why be so fixated on the past? If you think Michelle Obama projects an exciting blend of beauty, taste and accomplishment -- so modern -- then wouldn't it have been better to present her in a way that didn't immediately remind everyone of someone else?
