Barack and Michelle Obama are telling the American people what they want to know: how they fell in love. Six pages of the newest issue of Us Weekly, will explore their romance and feature the Obama family photo album. Michelle's message: I'm your typical American mom. Perhaps Americans want to see a softer side in their first lady. And as far as campaign strategy goes — Us Weekly may not be The Atlantic, but it sure attracts a lot of eyes at grocery stores.
As part of her mission to meet America, Michelle also co-hosted The View this morning. She looked vibrant and at ease, as she asked for a fist bump from all the ladies. Michelle also managed to ask guest Matthew Broderick what motivated his 5-year-old son to endorse her husband.
Will you pick up the Obama issue that hits newsstands nationwide Friday? Are these lighter and more human appeals a breath of fresh air during a tough political season; or would you like to stick to the issues and the candidates? I look forward to seeing John and Cindy McCain on the next issue of Life&Style.
