Olbermann gushes over Michelle

Michelle Obama was the headliner for the Democrats last night at their Denver convention and she delivered a wonderful speech. Well, wonderful if you listened to the two 'news' anchors who commented after the speech that it was 'case closed' and 'wonderful' and 'couldn't have been done any better'. Oh, there's plenty more gushing from (take a wild guess) one of the networks last night.

Okay, what was with that dress? I actually liked the bold color and thought it probably would have flown on it's own... but then it got criss-crossed with that black satin band and didn't quite get off the ground. What do you think?

Michelle Obama History & Civil Business Politics

Michelle Obama's Biographer on Nation's First African American First Lady

Since the start of the presidential campaign, Michelle Obama has been more scrutinized than the spouse of any other presidential candidate. Scant attention has been paid to her personal history as the descendant of slaves, an upbringing in the South Side of Chicago, and work in community organizing. We speak to Washington Post writer Liza Mundy, author of the new unauthorized biography Michelle.

QUOTE
Mrs. Obama's new roles as first lady, mom-in-chief
By DARLENE SUPERVILLE, Associated Press Writer Darlene Superville, Associated Press Writer - Sun Feb 1, 10:32 am ET

People who've built careers studying first ladies say it will take time for Mrs. Obama to settle into hew new role.

Will she try to push the traditional first lady boundaries and have better luck with it than Hillary Rodham Clinton? Will she stick to tradition, avoid controversy and dive right into decorating, meal planning and welcoming guests to the White House? Will she try to do it all?

"I would be surprised if first ladies came into office in the first week and said, 'This is what I'm going to do,'" said Stacy A. Cordery, who teaches history at Monmouth College in Illinois. "For the most part, first ladies' platforms evolve. They have to get their footing."

Based on what Mrs. Obama has said, her role is unlikely to evolve fully until she's assured that her 10- and 7-year-old daughters are comfortably settled in at the White House after moving from Chicago, the only other place the girls have ever called home.

There are other hints about what lies ahead for the first lady:

_She'll continue as one of President Barack Obama's closest advisers. After all, their relationship began that way some 20 years ago when she was a corporate lawyer in Chicago and was assigned to be his mentor after the firm hired him as a summer intern.

_Her daughters come first. She'll try to keep their lives as normal as possible, even seeing to it that they make their beds and do other chores. Mrs. Obama largely has stayed out of the public eye since the inaugural, helping the girls make themselves at home. But she did hold a reception Thursday in the State Dining Room honoring Lilly Ledbetter, an Alabama woman whose name is on an equal-pay bill the president signed into law. On Monday, she planned to visit the Education Department and speak briefly to the staff. Mrs. Obama's mother, Marian Robinson, also moved in to the White House and can fill in when duty calls the first lady away.

_Issues she's expressed interest in include helping women juggle career and family, and promoting community and national service. At the reception for Ledbetter, Mrs. Obama said she'd heard from working women all over the country during the campaign about the need for fair pay, especially "at a time when so many families are facing economic insecurity and instability." She also did her best to put her White House guests at ease, telling them: "Feel free, walk around, touch some stuff, just don't break anything."

_She could be eyeing her predecessor as a role model. Mrs. Obama has talked about how gracious she found Laura Bush to be and said, "I'm taking some cues." Accompanying her husband to the White House on Inauguration Day for coffee with the outgoing president and first lady, Mrs. Obama arrived with gift box in hand. Inside was a leather-bound journal and engraved pen for Laura Bush to use to begin writing her memoir.

Americans expect a certain kind of first lady, one who supports the president, doesn't steal too much of his spotlight, stays out of trouble, advocates for favored causes and does all the other things that come with running a home, such as raising children, being a hostess, planning parties and decorating.

But each first lady puts her own stamp on the position, as Mrs. Obama is sure to do.



How will Mrs. Obama fare as our first lady? Personally, I think she is a very intelligent, sophisticated woman and protective mother. I like her initial choices of championing military families and being "mom-in-chief" for her daughters. It will be interesting to watch her evolve.Source 1

I don't have anything against Michelle but I wonder, why is it that US citizens seem to be fascinated by her? Yes, she seems to be an educated woman but what else? Women in general seem to admire her fashion sense (she has some good choices but others, oh no!) Sorry but sleeveless dresses and showing a lot of "legs" are for much younger women. In my opinion, of course.

There are a lot of us who also wonder why the media makes such a fuss about her. Much of it is just overblown hype, to make it appear that the people are really that overwhelmed by her.

Laura Ingraham, a conservative talk-show host, claims that it is all part of the Obama "razzle dazzle" program to keep people from paying attention to his socialist programs. I tend to agree, as she really is not that attractive (according to my wife) and her fashion sense sucks (again, according to my wife). Personally, I find her a complete waste of time and attention.
