I love Michelle

When news first began to buzz about of Barack Obama aspiring for the White House I would joke about getting my presidential internship application ready. But I learned about the wife I would be trying to take him away from Michelle and how do they say it in the streets? Game recognizes game. That's a real woman. And she immediately became one of my heroes. What I love about her is her realness, her frankness about life and her relationship with her husband. She also makes it look doable. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Mark Twain that "great people aren't those who can make others feel that they too, can become great." She's pretty great to me. As amazing an accomplished in her own right (she was Barack's mentor at the law firm in which they met) as she is, I can see myself there. Not just by the obvious, the way she looks (though I am comforted by the fact that she has a relaxer), but the way she speaks and what she speaks about. While I DO LOVE Barack, I love the woman who managed to marry Sen. Obama more.
