18 Reasons We’ll Miss Michelle Obama

As the Obamas prepare to leave the White House, it’s natural to look back on some of their better moments — especially since the incoming prospects are looking so grim. Although Melania is a snappy dresser, and definitely looks beautiful in an evening gown, the First Lady should stand for so much more. Michelle Obama was the perfect example of a classy, elegant woman who could stand on her own, and not only be an ornament to the Presidency, but make some real, lasting changes in America.

Here are a few of the many reasons we’ll miss Michelle after January 20th.

She’s the classiest date

Have you seen that woman wear an evening gown? From the very first Inaugural Ball, Michelle Obama showed that she wasn’t just a pretty face. Her elegance and ability to stand out in a crowd have served her well through her eight years in the White House.

Her final State Dinner outfit sealed the deal. Created by Versace, the custom rose-gold draped ensemble ensured that her style will be remembered for years to come.

She oozes diplomacy

Even in her very first months as First Lady, Michelle Obama was committed to getting to know everyone in Washington — not just politicians. She visited soup kitchens in the DC Metro area, and dropped into homeless shelters.

The best part? This was before she had even started any of her policy initiatives.

She has a good sense of the issues facing regular Americans

Although Michelle was criticized by some pundits for choosing issues that are ‘too traditional’ for a First Lady, her support of initiatives focusing on healthy eating and fighting obesity are truly what America needed.

She was the only politician in Washington focusing on obesity. Although it wasn’t the most popular issue, it is a major health crisis that many Americans are facing right now.
