Michelle Obama fangirl

I'm a fan of Barack Obama, but I'm wild about Michelle Obama. I've never actively liked a first lady before - I think Barbara Bush was the most personable of presidential wives during my conscious civic life. I was musing on whether the Obamas would get any criticism for going "too black" with Aretha's musical interpretation. But then I looked at the religious speaker and their manner and clothes, and I thought: "they will be given all the room in the world: they out-WASP the WASPs with their poise, reserve, and dignity." Plus, Michelle dresses like a house on fire.
