Newsweek writer Allison Samuels sums up my own feelings about First Lady Michelle Obama. I adore her, but I admit that I expected a wider platform of issues for her.
The Samuels article addresses the subject of Michelle not wanting to take the Hillary path to an unfavorable public image.
Nancy Pelosi can tell Michelle that poll numbers don’t mean everything for a successful woman. And it does seem that Hillary turned out just fine, after a couple verbal mishaps and the nation’s inability to grasp her now well-received research on health care.
I know; I know. The First Lady is not an elected position.
There’s a major difference between Michelle’s style and that of Carla Bruni, Sarah Brown and Queen Rania, who we also track on Anne of Carversville.
Each of these women is also a mom and all are far more involved in the disheartening problems of life than Michelle Obama.
