Obama tells Vibe readers 'I need you' in letter

NEW YORK (AP) -- Barack Obama has a message for the readers of Vibe: "I need you."

In a letter to be published in the November issue, the Democratic presidential candidate is given a page to address the readers of the urban music monthly magazine. In it, Obama urges them to register to vote, saying, "We are at a defining moment in our history."

"I am running for president to take this country in a new direction. But I can't do it alone. I need you," the letter reads. "I need you to register to vote on November 4."

Obama is featured on the cover of the magazine for the second time -- the first was for the September 2007 issue. He also gets the endorsement of the magazine, the first presidential endorsement ever made by Vibe.
