    Michelle Obama as Cover girl doesn't always Deliver

    I thought this was interesting -- not from a political point of view, but from an advertising\merchandising POV. IMO, Michelle is a relatable, everyday woman who raises her kids, stands by her man, and has stepped up to take on the responsibilities of First Lady -- just like every President's wife before her. No more, no less. Yes, we've had the occasional style icon like Jackie Kennedy, but that standard is terribly high. I like Michelle Obama, but there is nothing about her that would persuade me to buy a magazine I wouldn't ordinarily buy. Expecting her to boost sales is a little unfair. Just let her be First Lady, for goodness sakes. IMO

    Opes? I like that.

    I think Michelle looks good on that cover, I like her outfit. But Oprah looks so uncomfortable....hands in prayer position, anxious facial expression. Maybe she's just not used to sharing the cover.

    I like Michelle Obama and I think she is and will remain a fabulous First Lady. I don't care for marketing her as though she is a celebrity though. She deserves much respect for who and what she is, but treating her as a celebrity in an age when celebrities act childish and irresponsible to get attention just cheapens the First Lady's status. I think the article proves my point.

    I think she has looked great on every cover, and I would love to have arms like that, but I do think she's been way OVEREXPOSED - just a few great covers and nice articles would suffice. I know she looks great in her clothes, now; enough already.

    That said, I think she's very smart and has alot to offer; that's more important than knock-down looks. And how she is as a mother is very important to me and an example to mothers around the country.

    I think the victory garden is a fantastic idea!
