Jack Cafferty says Michelle Obama understands that the White House is the “people’s house.”
I think I am developing a crush on America’s first lady. Michelle Obama is more compelling than her husband. He’s good, but she’s utterly fascinating.
Mrs. Obama has blown away the stale air in a White House musty from eight years of the Bushes. It’s like the sun came out and a fresh spring breeze began wafting through the open windows.
It’s the people’s house, and Michelle Obama totally gets it. So much so that she has taken to inviting people in from the streets to see her home. Nice touch — one completely lacking in her recent predecessors.
Watch her when she visits a local school and you see the warmth and affection she instantly triggers in people. Kids are pretty much totally honest with very good BS-detectors. If they sense you’re a phony, forget it. But around the first lady, they want to hug her and laugh with her and tell her stories.
You can see the same qualities these kids recognize in her daughters. She is the consummate mother as evidenced by the poised, polite smiling children she and her husband are raising. I have four daughters, and trust me — they don’t turn out like the Obama children without devoted parents. Source: CNN.com
I stayed up last night to watch Michelle’s speech in support of her husband and why we should vote for him. I was actually moved because she spoke from the heart and she spoke to the average person. Her poise and demeanor was elegant yet firm. Her tone resembled that of a strong leader. I actually got a little teary eyed as she spoke of her father and also when her daughters came up to greet her on stage. She recalled her husband, Barack Obama, as a nervous new dad, before the hype and hoopla of his life on the national stage, and said he has not been changed by politics. “He’s the same man who drove me and our new baby daughter home from the hospital 10 years ago this summer,” said Michelle, “inching along at a snail’s pace, peering anxiously at us in the rearview mirror, feeling the whole weight of her future in his hands … [He was] determined to give her what he never had, the affirming embrace of a father’s love.”
Her voice caught with emotion and she sniffed several times.
Actress Kerry Washington was in the convention hall for Michelle’s speech, calling her the new Jackie O. “I’m really excited about all of us emulating her – not only in her style but in her grace,” said the Ray actress, who campaigned for Barack Obama in nine states during the Democratic primaries.
After Michelle’s speech ended, she was joined by daughters Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, as Stevie Wonder’s song “Isn’t She Lovely” played over the loudspeakers.
From the stage, the couple’s daughter’s called out “I love you, Daddy” as the family wished each other good night.
