Michelle Obama: Young Women Can “Have the Power”

Since her husband was re-elected last November, Michelle Obama has finally been able to mitigate the pressures of short-term family planning for the first time in more than five years. Now that all the “what ifs” have been locked in, America’s most famous mom has “a little more room to breathe,” and a lot more issues to take on for America in Obama’s second term.

If she ever decided to run, Mobama would no doubt be the babeliest president to ever grace the Oval Office (hello, arms). Sadly, that’s not really on her agenda, according to a recent interview — but the First Lady does think that the country is ready for its first female president.

And if anybody knows anything about making it work (aside from Tim Gunn), it’s Michelle Obama. In addition to her Let’s Move! anti-childhood obesity platform, the First Lady has ushered in new school lunch standards, military family benefits and is currently focusing on education empowerment.

Of course, education doesn’t end in the classroom, and Michelle recognizes that she’s still got some learning to do herself — even as she approaches her 50th birthday this January.
