Sports Illustrated has been a mainstay in the sports media market for decades now, but only 4 Presidents of the United States have ever graced the cover. Bill Clinton, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan have all been on the cover. Reagan was the only one to make an appearance twice. No modern president has ever been on the front cover of Sports Illustrated, but they have been featured inside its pages. President Barack Obama is one such example.
