Michelle Obama Wins The Coolest First Lady Award

I am not really one to watch late night television. Once my eleven o’clock news is over, I am pretty much toast most nights. But I had to record Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday night because my favorite band, The Avett Brothers would be performing.

What I also forgot was the fact that Michelle Obama was the special guest for the evening. So it was like an added bonus!

But then I started to really think about her, and all she has done. All the YouTube clips of her doing the Dougie, or poking fun at herself, and simply shopping at Target like a regular Joe, I realized, she is probably one of the coolest First Lady’s ever. I mean, I love Hillary Clinton, but I would rather see her in the White House as President. And if we are being serious, when she was First Lady, she wasn’t exactly cruising the late night scene dancing with Jimmy Fallon pretending to be a mom.

The Evolution of the Mom Dance has to be one of the funniest videos I have seen in a while. Seriously. I just hope that isn’t what I look like when I start dancing!

What do you think about First Lady Michelle Obama gettin’ down on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon?

    Am I the only one who would prefer to have a CLASSY first lady?

      @Sammy – I have never seen her act less than “classy” She just clearly knows how to let her hair down and act like a normal, everyday Joe. Which to me, makes her far better at being the First Lady.

    I see your point. Michelle Obama rolling her eyes at John Boehner was certainly a classy move. As was her disgust at our country before 2008. I miss Jackie.

    “missing Jackie” is really taking a step backward for women. We all loved her elegance but her time is gone and it’s good to have a First Lady who is a “real” woman. Times have changed and it’s great to have someone we can relate to and respect…one who deserves the respect of us all.
