  1. It's too bad

    Kind of funny how CNN purges anything when you state how ugly she really is.

    Very nonsensical poll ...... she is our first lady.No ifs and buts about it, like it or not.

    With such education and culture, she sure will be a great first lady!

    With all the advisers and support staff, how can you make a bad first lady?

    Let's give the woman a chance to prove herself. She got off to a rocky start in the campaign– even I didn't care for her. But she seemed to get herself together pretty quickly and in later interviews she came across much better. Yeah, I would have initially preferred to see Bill Clinton as the "First Husband", but since that didn't happen, I'll give Michelle Obama a chance. Good luck & Godspeed to her.

    She is smart and have the grace that Jackie K. had. We as americans should be proud to present to the world this family. May we embrace and work with the Obamas to make this a better nation. May God bless and keep them.

    I hope Michelle Obama doesn't make the same mistake in the future as she made in the past (This is the first time that she's PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN), I bet she is and it's only that her husband ran for President. I wonder if he hadn't ran, would she be PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN????????

    I guess I'm part of the 35%.

    Add me to the 35% (86% percent voted for McCain)....I do not think she presents herself well as a first lady. From coming off of a plane in leather pants, from looking like her wardrobe needs updated, to the remarks she makes about this country.

    I don't think i will enjoy watching her for 4 years. I don't think we'll see her much after 4 years, but I won't like it this next 4 years.
