Gack, I’m going to lose my dinner. Apart from being the first black first lady, what did she actually do in the office? Besides take a lot of vacations, and occasionally say she cared about kids moving? If you don’t see it coming, she’s being set up to run for President in the future.
“She had rhythm, a flow and swerve, hands slicing air, body weight moving from foot to foot, a beautiful rhythm. In anything else but a black American body, it would have been contrived.”
