*Yet Another Mandatory Update
I really like Michelle Obama. I love to listen to her speak. I think she is passionate, articulate and sincere. If her husband becomes the Democratic nominee and goes all the way to the White House, I want to hear what she has to say. I want to see what she can and will do as First Lady. I want to listen to her thoughts, her opinions and…well, her.
People have either flat out said it or implied that as a woman it is time–nay my duty– to support a woman for President. You know the rhetoric: Vote with your uterus not with your mind! I would do back flips to see a woman in office. Just not so much the one running in this election.

(Sidenote: This is not a statement that I am either endorsing or opposing Barack Obama. It is merely my personal lovefest with Michelle Obama. But really? If it is time for change and time for a woman, I am just saying that this is one woman I would happily get behind. Her or Angelina Jolie. Because? She would just adopt all of the people of America who need her help and then? We would all be happy Jolie-Pitts.)
