Obamarama: Michelle for First Lady!
February 1, 2008
I’m nowhere as enthusiastic about Barack as I am about Michelle! The woman is fierce! And although mainstream US media wants to find a way to dismiss and diminish her, they won’t she’s a force to contend with.
I happen to like women with a mouth, especially when they have a position of visibility like from the White House. I loved Hillary when she was making them sweat at the White House. Laura Bush, on the other hand, is a pathetic example that I will not give many words do. I’m waiting to hear what Michelle has to say — she’s been lighting up the campaign trail, doing and saying what Barack won’t or can’t. Much like “the Closer” on TV, she knows what to say and when to say it.
In fact, I think the Presidency should be decoupled from the “First Lady/First Gentleman” position. That person should have to campaign too! If they are going to be relegated to a domestic role, or to shoulder candy, we should have something to say about their taste in furniture, food, and on policy issues related to running the White House. Even though lately I think Michelle’s been wearing some outfits that seem more like she borrowed them from CondiRice, I think she will bring some flavour to DC.
So, I say vote for Michelle O. for First Lady, 08!
P.S. Read this Feb. 13 article. In law school, “Michelle had no use for fig leaves.” Furthermore, “[when] asked about the role of first lady, Mrs. Obama said she saw it as a full-time job. But, she hastened to add, she reserved the right to change her mind if she gets there.” Although I am sure we disagree on many things, I do love this woman!
