Michelle LaVaughn Obama, the Next First Lady

EVERYONE knows I love Barack. But I love his wife even more.

A Black woman born Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, a descendant of auction blocks and Daughter of the Ghetto, with chocolate-brown skin and wide hips is going to be the First Lady of the United States of America. That completely blows my mind.

Sojourner “Ain’t I A Woman?” Truth is dancing.

I get the most satisfaction out of the entire victory knowing that a black family, black man, black woman, and black children will be held up as a model for all to see and emulate. I am willing to bet that it will be a source of pride that will increase test scores, college attendance, and ambition in the black community in a way that many programs have been unable to. And depending upon what Obama's social and economic policies turn out to be, could also have a positive effect even on crime and teen age pregnancy.

i love Michelle too. so smart, so beautiful, such lovely daughters... Obama's achievement is amazing, but without Michelle he might not be quite as interesting and well-rounded. she seems such an integral part of who he is and i really like that.

you know I love her. You know I do. I can't, even though I've done posts, really and truly express what it means to me to see Michelle Obama. Oh, I can't talk about it. it's too jumbled.
