Michelle Obama - I Think I Like Her

I have to admit, I didn't know what to make of Michelle Obama. I've been hearing rumors that she's uptight, tough as nails and guarded. And then, last night, I wanted to see for myself what she was all about. And you know what? She's pretty damn impressive and seems pretty grounded too. I guess that's why she and her husband earned Oprah Winfrey's endorsement almost a year ago.

Michelle grew up on the South Side of Chicago, was raised by a stay at home mom and her hard working dad who developed multiple sclerosis early in his life. Despite their modest beginnings, Michelle and her brother Brian attended Ivy League schools and while both could have pursued careers making tons of money in finance and law, they followed their hearts and did what they love. Brian is now a basketball coach at the University of Oregon and Michelle devoted her life to public service, her husband and of course, her two daughters, who are absolutely adorable. But don't listen to me, make your own decision whether you like her or not by reading her speech. Better yet, if you want to watch it, then here it is...

And for more behind the scenes video of Michelle and her girls, check out this clip. Trust me, I think you'll be impressed by what you see.
