Mommy Michelle


I told myself that once the election was over, I could take a deep breath and go back to indulging my love of vintage/retro/kitschy/old school things. I will, I promise [Bond post coming soon], but I wanted to share this really interesting article from Salon. There's no question that this election was nuts because there were two women running who actually stood a chance and we ended up with a non-white--people are squawking that since Obama had a white mother you can't really call him black--candidate on his way to the White House. The article talks about how Michelle Obama has been turned into a Donna Reed throwback by the media and her husband's career.

I love that she's going to be in the White House because she's incredibly smart, she's beautiful, and she'll be much more of a presence than the woman that's in there now. But I do hope that she gets a chance to do something fulfilling for herself while her husband's saving the world. Tell me what you think of the article.

  1. I love the Obamas period. I find them completely refreshing.
