Interesting article on the Obama marriage in the NYT, but this paragraph was a little disturbing:
“It was essential for the Obama campaign to present some sort of accomplished female counterweight to Hillary Clinton, to convince Democratic women that they could vote for Barack Obama and a powerful female figure besides. Consciously or not, Michelle made herself into an appealing contrast to the front-runner.”
Is the author suggesting that women really cannot tell the difference between having a female President and having a badass first lady?
Ladies, you can tell the difference, right?
