The Washington Post Reports:
Michelle Obama Covergirl

Next week's Ebony magazine features an 11-page spread about Mrs. Obama that includes interviews with her mother, brother and several close friends.

"I love to look glamorous when there's a wonderful, purposeful event that is appropriate. But when I'm in Iowa campaigning with the girls, I am in Gap shorts and a T-shirt," Mrs. Obama says of her fashion sense. "My first job in all honesty is going to continue to be mom-in-chief," she later says of her family commitments. "We accessorize each other in many ways," she says of her marriage to the senator.

"She wanted to open the doors and let America see who she is. She invited Ebony into her inner circle," says the magazine's creative director Harriette Cole, who compiled more than 500 pages of notes for her report. The magazine has covered the senator's rise since before he ran for the Illinois state Senate, Cole said.

The Real Michelle Obama - Ebony

Looking fabulous as always,  the cover page is a great photo of Michelle:


I look forward to reading the interview with her mom.

There are also quite a few audio clips with Michelle on the Ebony page online:

2008 Voting Choice
The White House
Children in the Public Eye
First Kid Awareness
We Compliment Each Other
First Lady Issues
Unifying A Nation
Kennedy Comparison
A Healthy Perspective
Negative/Positive Media
Time For Self

While Cindy McCain made news this week for her shameful husband's suggestion she compete for Miss Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, Michelle on the other hand continues to present herself as a great role model for working mom's from working class families, American women of all colors - and hopefully our future First Lady.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
