(Republished from August 2009 to wash away some of the nonsense said lately about the First Lady. Enjoy!)

No deep thoughts, tonight. No paeans to Teddy, no aggressive plans to march on Washington. No complicated research.

I'm tired and convalescing. I need something calming, something that will bring a smile to my face, something on the sunny side of life.

I bring you a diary of our beautiful and intelligent First Lady.

If you'd like more, join me over the fold (picture intensive).(and in reply to those who asked about the source of the picture above, it was part of her Vogue article.

How many First Ladies have looked so natural and graceful on covers?

The photoshoot for that second Ebony cover by the way also produced these two:
An intimate close-up

And the full shot!!

She looks happy and energized with her daughters and other children:

And with Barack of course she radiates at him, and he radiates back:

She has been graceful for a long time:
But she can stand alone with grace and poise and an intelligent energy all her own:

Indeed, she is

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.
