The next First Lady already has a transcending beauty about her that doesn’t require a $150,000 wardrobe. She was recently on Jay Leno talking fashion among other things:
Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, , made a guest appearance on Jay Leno Monday, and the talk show host didn’t waste any time mentioning the recent controversy surrounding Sarah Palin’s lavish wardrobe. Questioned by Leno, the potential first lady declined to criticize GOP vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin about revelations that the Republican National Committee spent $150,000 at Neiman Marcus and other high-end retailers on clothes and accessories for Palin and her family, according to The Associated Press. “Actually, this is a J. Crew ensemble,” she told comedian Jay Leno. She wore a yellow sweater, skirt and blouse ensemble. “You can get some good stuff online,” she added. Obama said she and her husband have a policy of spending their own money on their clothes. But she said she wanted to be “empathetic.” “A V.P. pick, it’s like being shot out of a cannon. All of a sudden you’re at the center of attention, and you want to look good,” said Michelle Obama, adding she has never met Palin. “You’re living in your home, minding your business, and all of a sudden you’re on the national stage and everyone’s watching.”
What a classy first lady we will have. Pale-in would not respond remotely as tactfully as Michelle did. You know they would have been handing out flyers, blasting emails, and running commercials if Michelle had spent that kind of money on anything.
