“Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long. Then it’s ‘Who are you as a person?’ Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul … When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good.” – First Lady Michelle Obama in a 2009 interview with Glamour Magazine
It’s fair to say that much of the President’s appeal with the masses is due in part to the First Lady. Michelle is incredibly popular with women in general and a force in her own right. She’s educated, beautiful, poised, and gracious. President Obama knows what an asset he has in her – he has playfully stated that “She’s like Beyonce in that song, she upgraded me!” . It’s been years since the White House has had such a youthful couple living in it and we just love when the President and First Lady have those random displays of affection.
“What Michelle has done is to remind me every day of the virtues of order. Being on time. Hanging up your clothes. Being intentional about planning time with your kids. There’s no doubt I’m a better man having spent time with Michelle. I would never say that Michelle’s a better woman, but I will say she’s a little more patient.” – President Obama on Michelle
