Notes
Keep in mind these were potential candidates for the first months of 2015.  Announcements of candidacy occurred between March 23 and July 30.

Also keep in mind the difference between the cover/issue date and when the magazine actually appears.  For example Reason's July 2015 issue was out by May 25 and the Oct. 2016 issue at the end of August.

There was a bit of hubbub over Time's March 23, 2015 cover of Hillary Clinton which appeared to give her horns due to the "M" in the background.  Time responded with a posting "34 TIME Magazine Covers That Appeared to Give People Horns."


Coinciding with Hillary Clinton's April 12, 2015 announcement, she was on the cover of New York magazine and The Economist, Bill Clinton was on the cover of Town & Country and Chelsea Clinton was on the cover of Elle.
