I love Michelle Obama. She’s beautiful, poised, stylish, charming, intelligent, she has a beautiful family and she’s not afraid to fist bump her man on national television. She just might be our country’s next First Lady and I couldn’t be more excited. This Ivy League educated lawyer is proof that being an educated black woman does not mean resigning one’s self to being single forever if that’s not what you want to do.
Michelle and Barack (yeah, I’m on a first name basis with the Obamas) are really the first political couple Generation Xers and later have to ooh and aaah about in terms of romance. In my lifetime, I’ve never seen a political couple that seemed more genuinely in love. And Michelle is so graceful and gracious. Somehow she’s managed to successfully balance motherhood, marriage, career (though she quit her job a while ago) and activism. She’s going to make a fabulous First Lady.
