The Deal With Michelle Obama
With everyone making such a fuss over Hillary Clinton’s spouse in regard to her shot at being the man of the house; it only seems fair to me that Michelle Obama be dragged out to the boxing ring and forced to show us what she is made of, too.
Through a complication that seems to be either really good or really bad for Hillary at all times…her husband was president. Therefore, we likely already have an established opinion of him. And, by default, unfortunately, many people will not be voting for Hillary simply because of their views of Bill.
So if we are going to put such a heavy emphasis on the spouses of the candidates, we should all know a lot more about Michelle.
Michelle is American. She was raised in Chicago and went on to study at Princeton University and then attended Harvard Law School. She went back to Chicago to work as a lawyer when she completed her education.
Okay. So far, so good. The chic is smart. She even skipped second grade.
HOW’D THEY HOOK UP?
Michelle and Barack both stood out at the law firm where they were working in Chicago. They were the only African Americans at the firm. She was initially mentoring HIM when they met. So if you’ve got any questions as to whether or not Barack takes advice from Michelle…I think that’s pretty evident considering that their relationship has been built on that atmosphere.
WHAT IS SHE LIKE?
Well, clearly, she’s very intelligent. She speaks eloquently, but there is no questioning her sense of humor. In fact, Michelle was being so sarcastic in the beginning of Barack’s campaign that she had to tone it down due to the fact that picking up on sarcasm requires a portion of a brain…and not everyone in this country has that.
The good news is that she seems pretty sound, reasonable, and passionate about the future of this country. The bad news is that a candidate is always campaigning with their spouse, and god bless the hearts of those who are single and aspire for a career in politics.
There has always been this unsafe stigma attached to the concept of a politician NOT attached romantically. Thus far, this country has seen only one bachelor president: James Buchanan.
