America’s first lady has been a solid rock to President Obama, making them arguably one of the biggest double acts of all time. People weren’t just voting for Barack; they also didn't want to lose Michelle's influence on the women of America, if not the world. A beacon of strong femininity, a women hungry for progress, a women not afraid in her own skin. Is MObama one of the best female orators of modern time?
"Years from now, few will remember what President Obama said in his most recent State of the Union address, or the critiques of his Republican opponents. But some little girl will come across a copy of Michelle Obama's Vogue magazine covers, presenting her in all of her dark-brown-skinned, full-lipped glory, and see herself and know that she is as beautiful as an American first lady."
