Michelle Obama - the Master Switch of the White House

Sunday, 14 December 2008

Michelle ObamaThe master-switch, this is the nickname that Michelle Obama earned while the presidential campaign lasted for the virtuosity with which she was able to persuade the hesitating electors to go for the democrats and her husband Barack Obama. Master-switch is what they call the runners that finish too fast and too unpredictable. Michelle Obama (Born as Michelle LaVaugh Robinson), born 1964 in Chicago, Illinois. Her father was a plumber on one of Chicago's companies. Michelle has a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology with which she graduated from Princeton University in 1985. She also is a Doctor of Law which she got in Harvard's Law School in the year 1988. From 1988 to 1992 Michelle was working in a juridical company called "Sidley Austin" where she specialized on marketing and intellectual property laws and issues. This is where she met Barack Obama got to know him and married him in the year 1992.

From 1992 to 1993 Michelle LaVaugh Obama was working as the Chicago's mayor assistant and as a deputy commissioner of the planning and developing. From 1993 until 1996 Michelle worked as the executive director of the Chicago's department of the youth organization called Public Allies. From the year 1996 until the year 2002 Michelle was the Chicago's University Dean's assistant of the student issues and enquiries. From the year 2002 Michelle was a executive director of the public services and issues in the Academic Medical Centre of the Chicago University. She resigned in the year 2007 and from then on she works as the vice president for public and external issues and enquiries of this very centre.

She's quite an active lady, isn't she? Furthermore, Michelle has been bringing up two adorable daughters: Malia (born 1999) and Natasha (born 2001). She also is quite a frequent guest on the "Most Stylishly Dressed People" list of the "People" magazine and now Michelle is believed to be willing to give help to working women and to their families.

This is, by the way, where she sees herself when being asked about her first lady's duties. Michelle is willing to help the families that have working women in them, especially if the women are working in the military sphere. While accompanying her husband, Barack Obama during his presidential campaign, Michelle brought up that it is very hard for a working mother to raise her children. To be honest, according to mass media Michelle didn't have a clue that people are obliged to work to be able to support their families, pay their bills and help their own parents, but one shouldn't really trust the yellow pages of the mass media anyway, should he?

During the presidential campaign, Michelle Obama was talking to mothers whose paycheck couldn't even cover the food expenditures. "Those mothers could have only afforded taking care of their child in case they would have gotten a second job. More than twenty two millions of women are not getting paid for their medical insurance by their employer in the USA. Millions of those women are doing the same job as the men do, however the women get paid less." Those words belong to Michelle Obama and this is how she described the women's lives and her impressions from them. It seems that it was quite a shock for her that there were actually people who live under such disastrous circumstances. After finding the horrible truth out, Michelle promised to help those women get a better life, promised she would do anything possible to help the working women and army-men widows to solve their problems.

It is quite possible that a quite an extraordinary first lady would come out of Michelle Obama. Mass media are always trying to parallel Michelle with the preceding first ladies of the White House. She was compared to Eleanor Roosevelt (for both of the ladies having same ideological views), Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy (for having two daughters and the stylistic views), Nancy Reagan (for having the same influence on her husband) and with Hillary Clinton (for the jurisprudence background and the ambitions both possessed). But it is very doubtable that the comparisons will do any good here, because Michelle Obama is Michelle Obama and there is nothing else to talk about here.

However the mass media analytics are definitely right about the influence Michelle has on her husband. To be honest the way she treats her husband is very and very specific and extraordinary, especially keeping in mind that Barack would occupy the Oval cabinet any day now. Michelle calls her husband "baby" in public. "If he one day becomes the president I would tell him: "Baby you can do just so much here!" - This is what Michelle was telling the public during Barack Obama's presidential campaign. There are also some comments about the fact that it is Michelle who is responsible for the newly elected president's clothing style. However once said something like "Actually he doesn't wear any trousers except for these for ten years already..." or "Don't you shoot his shoes, we were just about to get him the new pair..." is added.

It is quite okay after realizing all this to think a bit differently about Barack Obama. Who is this new president of the United States of America? That confident man with the charming smile and the extremely powerful charisma, the one who looks upon us from the billboards and the screen of out televisions, isn't he just a helpless baby boy who is not capable of putting different trousers on without his wife helping him?

It is quite interesting to see how the women of the USA would treat their husbands in the years to come after they will see the way Michelle Obama treats her husband. Who knows, maybe the epidemic feminism is upon us?
