PHOTOS: First Lady Michelle Obama covers Vogue Magazine

How can you not love this woman? The First Lady is on the cover of the April edition of Vogue Magazine. Mrs. Obama along with the President open up about their goals for the 2nd term along with more personal items like their marriage and parenting skills. The article was pretty interesting and included a couple of new tidbits that we haven’t heard before. Below are a couple of my favorite quotes.

FLOTUS comments on Pres. Obama’s cool demeanor: “That was one of the things I was worried about: How would politics affect this very decent, genuine, noble individual? And there is just something about his spirit that allows all that stuff to stay on the outside.”

Pres. Obama comments on FLOTUS: “There’s no doubt I’m a better man having spent time with Michelle. I would never say that Michelle’s a better woman, but I will say she’s a little more patient.”

From Valerie Jarrett:  “They had a very good marriage going in, but it strengthened it because, well, it’s tested it. He has had some really, really tough moments in the White House, and the fact that his partner in this journey has been so steadfastly in his corner and never wavered, it teaches you every day to appreciate what you have. When you’ve had a really tough day and had to make the kinds of literally life-and-death decisions that he’s had to make in the Oval Office, to come home and know you’re safe and that your children are being well taken care of and you feel totally nurtured. . . . We joke about this: He goes home for dinner and no one’s interested in his day. They want to talk about their day. And that is such a relief. And she manages that for him.”

Also on of my all-time favorite quotes from the First Lady and a habit that I am trying to instill in my own life: ”…I’ve made changes in my life, it’s just sort of stepping back and seeing a change not as something to guard against but as a wonderful addition . . . that can make life fun and unexpected. Oftentimes, it’s the way we react to change that is the thing that determines the overall experience. So I’ve learned to let go and enjoy it and take it in and not take things too personally.”

The new edition will be on stands on March 26!

    The First Lady would look perhaps a little more of her world stature adding some pieces of jewerly. The bare look of arms is unfinished. Would love to dress her.

.@EmilysList celebrates election victories with Claire McCaskill and Debbie Wasserman Shultz

Emily’s List, the influential organization dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women to office, celebrated election night victories with a special panel and special guest Sen. Claire McCaskill and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

 

With a record-breaking 20 women headed to the U.S. Senate next year, and with 80 percent of its endorsed candidates winning in 2012, Emily’s List, a group dedicated to electing Democratic women to office,  had a lot to celebrate.

And celebrate it did: As Washington-based political organizations hold their post-election events, the foremost Democratic women’s group took its turn on the “victory lap” circuit Wednesday. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz addressed a handful of supporters and journalists at a briefing in downtown D.C.

Its message: In 2012 women turned out for Democrats — voting 55 percent for President Obama — because an atavistic GOP agenda turned them off, not simply because a few Republican candidates made epic mistakes with comments about  rape.

Stylebook: Jill Biden’s Veteran’s Day look

Pres. Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were joined by Vice President Joe Biden and Jill Biden to celebrate Veteran’s Day last Sunday at Arlington National Cemetery. Even while honoring our military, of course our first and second lady managed to stay stylish as well. I was immediately struck by Jill Biden’s ensemble. She paired a blue dress with a blue overcoat and even stepped out in blue bumps! The First Lady also looked radiant in a black dress and coat, accented by a gray over-sized bow and black Mary Janes.

Photo of the Day: Hillary Clinton watches her husband, Bill speak at the Democratic Convention #DNC2012

Swoon! Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was spotted watching her husband, Bill Clinton speak at the Democratic National Convention. Sec. Clinton is on a nine-day stop around Asia and is watching Bill currently in the nation of Timor Leste.  Previously, there had been alot of questions as to why Sec. Clinton didn’t attend the convention herself, however, the Dept of State released this information today regarding her participation. According to them, “The Hatch Act of 1939 specifically prohibits secretaries of state from attending political conventions, and additionally the State Department’s own ethics guidelines also rule out political activity.”

Are you watching the Convention?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton covers Conde Nast Traveler Magazine

Hillary Clinton is on the cover of this month’s Conde Nast Traveler Magazine in recognition of her becoming the most traveled Secretary of State. Sec. Clinton received this honor this past July after she embarked on a 13 day trip to Europe, Asia and the Middle East that amounted to over 27,000 miles. In the cover article entitled, “Nine Days with the Most Traveled Secretary of State in History, Conde Nast Traveler accompanied her to China, Bangladesh, and India. 

When Sec. Clinton was asked to name her favorite place to visit, she offered up this tidbit. 

“I’ll tell you a place! I’ve visited the emperor and empress of Japan several times. They are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet, and I am very fond of them. Each time, they have taken me into their private quarters for tea. It’s so calm. You sit in this minimalist Japanese room, looking out at the gardens—it’s so peaceful and restorative. I spend most of my time with the empress, who is one of my favorite people in the world. I’m always grateful after I’ve had the chance to be with them.”

Spotted: First Lady Michelle Obama and Gabby Douglas on The Tonight Show

Last night First Lady Michelle Obama appeared on the The Tonight Show to talk the Olympics as well as give details on the infamous kiss-cam incident. Joining Mrs. Obama on the couch was Gabby Douglas, the awe-inspiring gymnast that captured not only the all-around title at the Olympics but also helped her teammates gold in the team finals giving the US its first top spot since 1996.

The First Lady congratulated Douglas and even joked about her own acrobatic routines.  ”Yes, I did my share of ‘I can get on a beam and balance on the back of the couch. I would like to think I could be a gymnast, but my legs kept growing and it didn’t quite work out, ” stated she stated.

Mrs. Obama also shared details with Jay Leno on the mishap with the kiss-cam during the Olympic team’s exhibition game at the Verizon Center.

“I had just walked in and sat down, and I just saw my face on the Jumbotron. And I’m still a little embarrassed. I didn’t see the kiss-cam part, so I didn’t know we were supposed to kiss. And then Malia came over after we got booed for not kissing and she was just disgusted with us. She said, ‘Why didn’t you kiss?’”

Awww, I love it. Leave it up to the teenager to see them straight.

Spotted: Clinton aide Huma Abedin at White House Iftar Dinner

President Obama hosted his fourth annual Iftar Dinner at the White House this past Friday and among the guests was Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s traveling Chief of Staff and wife of former congressman Anthony Weiner. Abedin has been in the media lately after several reports (from Congress members) stated that she had ties to terror groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and is unpatriotic, even though she was born in the U.S. but raised in Saudi Arabia. However, Pres. Obama rebutted those claims at the dinner celebrated in honor of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and hailed Huma as an American patriot and a good friend.

Pres. Obama stated, ” [Huma] worked tirelessly in the White House, in the U.S. Senate, and most exhaustingly, at the State Department, where she has been nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear… The American people owe her a debt of gratitude — because Huma is an American patriot, and an example of what we need in this country — more public servants with her sense of decency, her grace and her generosity of spirit. 

Abedin recently gave birth to a son in June and was featured in People Magazine

Abedin has been in the media lately after several reports (from Congress members) stated that she had ties to terror groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and is unpatriotic, even though she was born in the U.S. but raised in Saudi Arabia. However, Pres. Obama rebutted those claims at the dinner celebrated in honor of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and hailed Huma as an American patriot and a good friend.

Pres. Obama stated, ” [Huma] worked tirelessly in the White House, in the U.S. Senate, and most exhaustingly, at the State Department, where she has been nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear… The American people owe her a debt of gratitude — because Huma is an American patriot, and an example of what we need in this country — more public servants with her sense of decency, her grace and her generosity of spirit. 

Abedin recently gave birth to a son in June and was featured in People Magazine

At the dinner celebrated in honor of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Pres. Obama hailed Huma as an American patriot and a good friend.

 

 

President Obama marked the Muslim holy month of Ramadan at the White House on Friday evening, hosting his fourth annual Iftar Dinner. In keeping with religious practice, the fast-breaking dinner for guests that included distinguished Muslim Americans, religious leaders, lawmakers, and members of the Diplomatic Corps began after sundown, at 8:40 PM in the State Dining Room. Clad in a dark suit as he stood at a podium beneath the famous portrait of Lincoln, the President spoke of the importance of religious freedom, and also gave a pointed defense of Huma Abedin, a Muslim American who is deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Abedin was seated at a table on the President’s left as he spoke (above).

Abedin, 36, has recently been the subject of headline-making but unproven attacks from a small group of House Republicans, who accused her of having ties to terror groups that have infiltrated the US government. The President did not mention Abedin’s accusers by name, but his point was clear as he hailed her as “a good friend” and “an American patriot.”

Abedin, the President said, has “worked tirelessly in the White House, in the U.S. Senate and most exhaustingly at the State Department, where she has been nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear. Senator Clinton has relied on her expertise and so have I.”

“The American people owe her a debt of gratitude because Huma is an American patriot and an example of what we need in this country–more public servants with her sense of decency, her grace and her generosity of spirit,” the President said. “So on behalf of all Americans, we thank you so much.”

First Lady Michelle Obama covers the September issue of Ladies’ Home Journal

First Lady Michelle Obama recently sat down and talked with Ladies’ Home Journal about the raising her two daughters, Malia and Sasha and the importance of women’s leadership. The interview also included a Q&A with President Obama, even getting his opinion on the lack of women in political office. See a portion of the interview below. 

Do you think we are missing out by not having more women in office?

President Obama: I think voters are hungry for women’s leadership. I think they recognize that women oftentimes have a more well rounded view of what American families are going through. I think they trust women candidates, and women leaders, to do the right thing, as opposed to being in it because of blind ambition. My hope is that each successive generation sees more and more women taking the risk.

How can we get more women to be leaders, whether in Washington or on their home turf?

Michelle Obama: We have to start with them while they’re young and instill in girls a sense of confidence. That’s why sports are so important. They teach you how to compete — how to fall down and get back up. And there are organizations like the Girl Scouts: They nurture self-confidence and give girls the chance to practice being in charge. We’ve got to give young women the opportunities to be leaders.

“Leaders who hold on to power at all costs, who suppress dissent, who enrich themselves, their families and their supporters at the expense of their own people, who define democracy as one election, one time, are on the wrong side of history .”

She also promoted the new U.S. strategy toward Africa, which she said is based on the goals of spurring development and economic growth, advancing peace and security, and strengthening democratic institutions.

This is Clinton’s first trip to sub-Saharan Africa since President Barack Obama announced his new strategy in June

First Lady Michelle Obama arrived in London late last night for the start of the 2012 London Olympics and she didn’t waste no time on getting started this morning. She hosted over 1000 children, including American military children, at the US embassy in London this morning. The ’Let’s Move-London’ event at the Winfield House was also sponsored by Nickelodeon’s The Big Help and the Department of State, and featured sports stations, musical performances and appearances by Olympic and Paralympic legends including members of the U.S. delegation. Soccer star David Beckham was on hand for the event and even kicked around a few balls. 

Beforehand Mrs. Obama gave the US Olympic teams members a prep talk for the start of the Olympics. As the head of the Olympics delegation, the First Lady is hosting several events as well as attending a reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by Queen Elizabeth and having a private lunch with the wife of British Prime Minister David Cameron, Samantha Cameron. Mrs. Obama is also expected to attend the Opening Ceremonies later today and offered a few encouraging words for the Olympians. 

“And I just wanted to come here and to tell you that very thing — that we are all proud of you all.  We really are.  You’ve got a country back home who is rooting for you every single second.  So you’ve already won.  And I’m proud to have the chance to cheer you guys on, in person, for the very first time in my life — in person at the Olympics, in London!  And then I’m going to be cheering back home, too, after they send me away because I can only stay for three days.”

Gabby Giffords tour the French Alps (PHOTOS)

You can’t look at this picture and not smile. Earlier this week, former (it still hurts to say former) Rep. Gabby Giffords visited the French Alps in Chamonix, France. In her first visit outside of the US after her tragic shooting, she took in the gorgeous views of Mont Blanc, highest mountain in the Alps as well as the highest mountain in Europe west of Russia. Along with her husband, Mark Kelly she rode a two-stage cable car to a station and walked a few meters in the snow.
