Black women like Obama have set the tone and laid the foundation for everything I’ve accomplished and aspire to be
President Barrack Obama’s time in office is coming to an end. The past few weeks and the weeks to come were and will be full of critiques, from the people who will ultimately contribute to defining his legacy, on Obamacare, the economy, foreign relations and everything else that gets sliced up into ideological sections.
But his major accomplishment is not debatable, the only thing that the left and right agree on unanimously. His greatest partnership is definitely not with Joe Biden but with the beauty, the intellect and the force that is Michelle Obama. She’s so poised, so gracious and so far above anything petty — and yet still resilient and grounded, clearly showing that she understands the plight of even the poorest Americans. I normally try to not directly speak for others, but I feel many would agree that her presence has been the perfect gift for America over the past eight years.
Millions tuned in last night to watch the first lady sitting down with Oprah Winfrey and reflecting on her time in the White House. She covered her initiatives, her family and gave insight about the power of hope.
