    Isn't she proud, beautiful and radiant? I am so proud of our probable next First Lady Michelle Obama "Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama" (born 17 January 1964) lawyer, and wife of Illinois senator Barack Obama, the 2008 Democratic nominee for President. She was born and grew up on the South Side of Chicago and graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Law School. Shown here at the Democratic Convention obviously quite proud of her husband Barack Obama. Michelle gave a speech as no First Lady has ever given before. Her intelligence, passion, maturity, confidence, poise, and at-ease was in full evidence. Michelle and Obama's children are darlings, who together brought the crowd to cheers and even many tears of joy. She will represent this country unlike any past or current President's spouse. Photo taken 26 August 2008 handheld from a HDTV screen - channel not noted. Pixelation noise attenuated in Photoshop. Technically, this is a photo of another's video, so I don't claim authorship. It was just too important not to capture and preserve here just this one time.

      What a great expression you captured. One picture is worth a thousand words, and this one says a lot. I was very impressed with her speech too.

      Go Obama! But really, anything but Bush should be a big improvement.

      I've taken photos of my tv screen, too. :) Michelle is a beautiful woman inside and out as far as I've seen in listening to her on tv and in person. She is going to be a fabulous mentor and role model for the women and girls of this country.
