Michelle is probably one of the most proud women on earth. On the night of election, Barack Obama greeted his wife as such: ‘The rock of our family, the love of my life…the nation’s next first lady – Michelle Obama. I am grateful to her’. When I heard this I thought about the famous phrase; “Behind Every Successful man there is a Strong women”! On the night of the American election this was again confirmed.
February 25, 2008 issue of Newsweek, "The Real Michelle Obama," looked at how the aspiring First Lady was coping with the scrutiny, balancing work and family life, and making sure her husband is "keeping it real". Michelle is described as relaxed, smart, funny, confident, and opinionated. She is described to be the same in private as in public. As a political spouse, she is somewhat unusual. She isn't the traditional booster who sticks to a script. Michelle has made it her job to ensure that Barack doesn't lose sight of what's normal. Michelle does this by reminding Obama of his role as a husband and father.
