At the risk of leading people to think I am obsessed with her...
I strongly suggest we make the new First Lady, Michelle Obama, the Official Icon of the Modern Woman.
I will never forget the expression on her face, as she held the Book her husband was being sworn in on. Intelligence, love, pride, astonishment.
With all due respect, what a departure from all the ones that preceded her (in every possible way).
Every time I see her I can't help but say 'wow'. For the way she looks, the healthy confidence she exudes, the way her personality shines through, what she accomplished, what she represents. What a wonderful role model this woman is.
