Michelle Obama: Favorite First Lady

Your Favorite First Lady Is . . .

It's no shocker that over 40 percent of you chose Michelle Obama as your first lady to love. Whether you like her husband's change or not, you can hardly deny she's upped the ante for future first ladies.

One other woman proved she has an alluring je ne sais quoi. First lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy took 20 percent of the votes. She doubles her first-lady duties with a music and (soon!) acting career, while managing to do damage control when nude photos from her past leak.

But multitasking and Frenchness proved to be no match for America's first lady. She openly talks about marriage challenges; isn't afraid to get dirty in the garden; and makes mistakes. We can relate. Plus, she loves dogs!

I don't really follow too much what first ladies are doing. That said, I sort of feel like Michelle would have had an advantage in this poll simply because this website has an american majority of visitors/members. I bet a lot of people simply voted for the one they know most about or who is the first lady of their own country.

SKG: unforch I think that when one spouse has such a demanding job the other one has to "lay low." Lance Armstrong's ex wife was talking about that a while ago -- how she uprooted her entire life because of his.
