Michelle Obama, like any real person, is certainly not without her faults and flaws. But she is inarguably the most approachable and most self-aware First Lady in recent history.

You talk a/b Laura (Oh no, don't associate me with Gay Rights) Bush... My good friend (and former upstairs neighbor in Manhattan) and talented colleague, Frank Versonsky was sent by Vanity Fair to the WH twice to photograph Ms. Bush during her hubby's terms. Frank told me that during both shoots, she had a hard time disguising her "royal bearing" behind a flimsy veil of manufactured charm and civility.

Yah, that Michelle, such a needy attention hound. smirk
