It was reported that Michelle Obama, the wife of Senator Barack Obama, has made a comment yesterday; “Iowa will make the difference,” she said. “If Barack doesn’t win Iowa, it is just a dream. If we win Iowa then we can move to the world as it should be. And we need your help in making that happen” (Yahoo! News).
The Obama camp quickly played down and tried to distance itself from her comment, saying that; “they were making it clear that they were optimistic about their chances in Iowa but didn’t consider it essential that they win.”
In a September 2007 interview with Glamour magazine, Michelle Obama reveals that, “her husband, Barack, is so ‘snore-y and stinky’ when he wakes up in the morning that their daughters won’t crawl into bed with him” (New York Times Blog).
Mrs. Obama is a Harvard Law School graduate, and as such, one would expect nothing but class from the possible future First Lady of the United States of America, but with a mouth like that, without limiting herself to what or what not to say, what kind of a First Lady could she possible be?
Rumor has it that Oprah has a big crush on Obama. So, could have Oprah, as Mrs. Oprah Obama, the First Lady, been a better reflection and an asset for the Barack Obama’s presidential campaign instead of the outspoken Michelle?
Sometimes, we may say certain things, hoping that we’re helping but sometimes, we might be actually far from that. Like President Bush, perhaps Michelle should get herself someone to teach her some etiquettes of public speaking in terms of what might be appropriate to say and not.
Michelle Obama, as the wife of Barack Obama, the democrat presidential hopeful, a greater reflection is constantly beamed upon her, and obviously everything that she does or say is severely scrutinized, and for that, perhaps limiting her public appearance for the time being might be the best choice for the Obama camp.
