One of the best things about President Obama and the first lady is the obvious fact...

that they truly respect and love one another very much. I think that resonates and their energy is so profound that you can't help but feel it. I watched them on Oprah talking about their relationship waaaay before he ever announced his bid to run. He had just become a senator and it's a conversation about her asking him to pick up the pizza for Malia's birthday party. He told her he would help her pick out the party favors and she said, "no" and he said "why" and her response was classic: "because little girls don't want a bunch of pencils and erasers in their goodie bags"... :rofl:

Here's the link:

1. Also, watching them together makes me believe...
there is not going to be any sort of marital scandal.

On top of that, think of what the example their relationship sends to the rest of the country.

2. A marital scandal between them...
...would be worse than finding out there's no Santa Claus.

3. During the campaign and at the Inauguration festivities, every time he embraced her...
... he would close his eyes and look like "I'm home."

Sweet Goddess, it just about makes me teary.

6. I listened to that video and there was nothing about pencils and erasers.
Michelle did say, though, that if Barack walked into the party store his head would explode.

I can relate to that!

You see, I watched that thinking the "pencils and erasers" was the funniest part of that clip. Guess I was alone. I'm looking for the COMPLETE interview now.

10. I wouldn't have edited it out either -- it would have cracked me up.
Thanks for the clips! If you happen upon the complete interview, I'd love a link.

:)

9. That is some real love and respect they have for each other there....
along with quite a bit of lust! That's what makes it all work. :)
