I saw his final campaign speech in Des Moines, the night before election day. Simply historic.

She has such excellent taste. I love the style and cut of her clothes, but also the gorgeous colors that she selects. She always looks impeccable, even in a casual, cute dress.

I so wish I had her toned arms. They are legendary!

about Michelle and Prez! Thanks DonRedwood.. you have a super great weekend!

Giz: How did "The Photo" come about?

ST: This picture was taken in Dubuque, IA on August 15th. Iowa is always a pretty special place for the Obamas, since Iowans were really the first people outside of Chicago to embrace the Obama candidacy, and we had been on a bus tour for three days. This was the first event the First Lady had been at and they hadn't seen each other for a few days. Because I'm a total sap and am also relatively recently married, I find their relationship to be totally inspirational in terms of the respect they have for each other, so I always try to focus on them as a couple, rather than as public figures.

48. You sure did, dipsydoodle. Doesn't that drive you nuts when someone else scoops you??

I was googling images of Michelle and Obama the other day (it was after the election) and I did see this photo, and I didn't recall seeing it before. I was going to use it, but then I realized it wasn't a new photo, as she was wearing a summer dress and we're into November. So I didn't, but I did think it was an amazing photo.

Kudos to you in finding and posting it!!!

Considering the ML scandal and all the scorn and ridicule he/they suffered because of it, I am amazed that he was able to carry on and even ultimately triumph! I don't hear a peep about the scandal anymore. That's pretty amazing when you're in the public eye like that!

But back to your point, yes, those two First Couples are very different.
