Michelle and Barack Obama, Corporate Democrats

John Edwards and his supporters refer to Hillary Clinton as a corporate Democrat.  But for reasons only Edwards's supporters can explain, they remain uncritical of Barack Obama, even though Obama may derail Edwards's attempt to secure a victory in Iowa.

Michelle Obama On "The Black Vote"

I am a 33 year old African American woman.

I am writing this diary because , as an African American, I have a right to have just as much input, if not more, on issues and statements that are directly aimed at the Black community as those who are not African American. Too many times, when something like this comes up, those who are not African American began , consciously or subconsciously , telling the Black Community how we should think and respond to something that has nothing at all to do with them. So, I am putting in my input first and I am doing it as an African American. I do not speak on behalf of the entire Black Community as you will see later in this diary. This is just my opinion based on my personal experiences as an African American. I will welcome mostly all comments.

Michelle Obama was recently interviewed on MSNBC and asked about her husbands poll numbers with specific regards to African Americans. Here was her response.

Michelle Obama's Role in Campaign & Reshaping Image of the Black Family

As I was thinking about the NON-controversy with Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, I thought about her role in this campaign, and how integral she has been for the Obama campaign.

First and foremost, Michelle Obama humanizes her husband. Her teasing and chiding in the beginning was a signal that Barack Obama is a very gifted man, but he's not the Second Coming, so don't see him that way, because he can't do anything but disappoint you. But, if you see him as a man with gifts, talent, service and inspiration, then he's your man, and stick with him.

While much has been written about Barack Obama's 'appeal' to the White community, because of his non-traditional background (growing up in Hawaii and Indonesia), you can't run a campaign across racial, ethnic and religious lines, if you don't have a narrative that those White audiences can relate to.

Michelle Obama talked about "running own house on Oprah in October, 2006"

Evidence in link below:

I've been watching the news coverage about Michelle Obama recently and I have to put this out there.

In October, 2006, as her husband was on his book tour before the mid-cycle election, she said something that stuck in my memory.

About whether or not her husband should run for president:

"Michelle says she admires the way her husband lives both his political aspirations and his family life. Although Michelle says she sometimes feels like a single parent, she accepts that time apart has "always sort of been the nature of the beast."

"It's not just the time, but it's the intent. It's what he does and how he reflects the importance of our relationship when he is there," Michelle says.

Michelle says she feels like family isn't a compromise we should make in politics. "In my view...I want the next president to be someone who understands what it means to be a father and a husband and is contributing. Because I don't think he can represent those values for us as a nation if he can't do it in his own house," Michelle says. "Whoever [the president] may be."

Guys, she's talking about her husband and little girls.
