Michelle Obama: Don't Vote Because 'She's Cute'

Michelle Obama: Don't Vote Because 'She's Cute'

Click to Read

Michelle Obama: Don't Vote Because "She's Cute" Michelle Obama asked voters Thursday to make their choice on the issues, not because, "I like that guy" or, "she's cute." Might she be talking about Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin? "I'm talking about me," she said with a smile. Barack Obama's wife, however, is not on the ticket in the presidential election. Palin is. Michelle Obama is part of a concerted effort involving her husband, his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to neutralize the appeal that Palin has brought to John McCain's ticket for some female voters.

kaylasix You're lucky. I wish I could have seen them speak. I wish Jill Biden got more attention also. I don't think Sarah Palin is cute at all.

Heck yes she was talking about Palin. The librarian who likes to burn books. If McCain could just get her to take off her glasses and let her hair down....

I don't see the controversy at all, and I'm trying to, really I am.

Michelle Obama is making an apearance/speech in Maryland this weekend. It's so close to where I live but I found out about the event to late. The place is already at capacity. :(

"she made a speech with jill biden at my college yesterday" Wish I could have heard them! I don't know if it was the best thing to say, but I don't think it was the worst either. I think the implication that people would vote for Obama because he was a "celebrity" or "charasmatic" was in the same vein.

It does seem pretty obvious she's referencing Palin, but I don't thin there's anything wrong with the statement.

I agree with the sentiment, I hope people vote on the issues, but for her to say it seems condescending in my opinion. It seems to imply people are voting for McCain because they like Palin. (I know she made a joke about referring to herself, but given Palin's popularity, it seems like she's talking about her.)

Is this anything like the "don't hate me because I'm beautiful" commercial from the early 80's.

I really hope this isn't made into a big deal. :oy:

a) I don't think Palin's cute; b) I'm voting Obama/Biden because of their experience and policies - the fact that they have great smiles is a happy plus.

Considering the fact that Michelle's been trashed by people using her as an example of why not to vote for/trust Obama, I'm glad she said this.
