You have got to be kidding me..Michelle Obama calls herself the new mum-in-chief but admirers say she's a 21st Century Jackie Kennedy who will bring glamour back to the White House
Lady, Jackie Kennedy was a classy, brave and intelligent woman. You ain't her...not even close.SHE initially did not want her husband to run for president. But yesterday Michelle Obama was being hailed as a key player in Barack Obama's White House triumph.
Mrs Obama was so crucial to clinching victory that campaign aides nicknamed her The Closer.
Now she is making history all of her own by becoming America's first black First Lady in the White House.
She calls herself the new mum-in-chief but her admirers are labelling her as a 21st Century Jackie Kennedy who will bring glamour back to the White House.
The 44-year-old emerged from the shadows to attract a spotlight of her own during her husband's exhausting 22-month campaign.
When Senator Obama had to break off from electioneering just days before the election to visit his dying grandmother in Hawaii, it was Mrs Obama he called on to step in for him at events he had to miss.
Far from being angry at the Democrat candidate's no-show, huge crowds happily cheered on his wife. It was just the latest example of the influence the striking 178cm Ivy League-educated lawyer had on her 47-year-old husband's quest.
