Michelle Obama, a new style of U.S. first lady

As U.S. first lady, Michelle Obama takes the experience of a lawyer of companies to the White House, but says its priority will be the role of “mother-in-chief” for the couple’s two daughters. The Democrat Barack Obama beat Republican John McCain in the presidential election on Tuesday and will be the first black to command the American presidency. Michelle will be the first black first lady.

At 44 years, she served as an earnest cable election of her husband. Michelle says, however, not want a political office in government.

– My main mission, in all honesty, will continue to be the ‘mother-in-chief’ – said in a recent interview, referring to his daughters Malia, age 10, and Sasha, 7 years.

Michelle also said he hopes to address ways for women to maintain balance work and family-care needs of families of soldiers. She also claimed that it could act as informal adviser to her husband, as was doing during the campaign.

The future first lady, who grew up in a neighborhood south of Chicago workers and that went to public school, usually talk about the her father – who worked in the public system of water in the city – and the values upheld by their parents.

After receiving scholarships to attend universities in art (Princeton and Harvard), Michelle worked at a law firm and the office of the mayor of Chicago. His most recent job was vice president of the University of Chicago Hospitals, a position in which received a salary higher than the husband.

Even that Obama is a family of means, in part because of the money won by Obama with his two books, Michelle always refers to the values she learned during her childhood and adolescence.

– When we grow up in a house in which we love and security and in which people make sacrifices for us, we have the obligation to return it – she said. – That is why community service has played so large a part of my life.

In his speech of victory, delivered the night of Tuesday in Chicago, Obama described his wife as “my best friend over the past 16 years, the rock of the family, the love of my life.” The president-elect says his wife has been a source of energy and kind of criticism that keep the feet on the ground.

The demonstrations of affection of the couple and the style of clothes used by Michelle – she has appeared in magazines such as Vogue and Essence – contribute to the image of the young candidate. Obama’s wife has a great popularity among Democrats, who appreciate the strength and intelligence designed by the future first lady. In February, however, Michelle caused controversy with a comment made during the campaign.

– For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country – said to an audience in Wisconsin. – And not just because Obama is doing well, but because I think people are eager to see changes.

The Conservatives described it then as unpatriotic, and those criticisms have left some angry black Americans, for whom patriotic issue would be used to alleviate the fight against racial inequality. Since then, Michelle spent much of his time supporting the families of American soldiers who fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.
