Michelle Obama Hosts The View

Posted on June 18, 2008

Michelle Obama co-hosted The View today as part of her "polishing up her image" tour. It seems to be working. They put her in a lovely sundress; her hair and makeup were flawless. She was clearly watching every word, realizing that the media is ready to pounce on any gaffe. She said nice things about Hillary, which was smart. She said she was grateful to Laura Bush for defending her over the "first time I'm proud of my country" flap. She was calm. Whoopi Goldberg, on the other hand, needed a tranquilizer.
