Behind every great man is a supporting and loving woman...

Everytime I see an image of President-elect Obama, I immediately think of his wife, Michelle Obama. This is in no way meant to take away from his accomplishments, but to acknowledge the fact that he has a powerhouse of support in his own household.

Michelle Obama is an accomplished individual in her own right- A cum laude Princetone Graduate, a Harvard Law School graduate, successful lawyer, a successful community organizer, an Assistant to the Mayor, an Assistant Commissioner of Planning and Development; she was Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago as well as their Executive Director for Community Affairs and, Vice President for Community and External Affairs; and She served as a salaried board member of TreeHouse Foods.

Michelle has accomplished all of this, as well as, being a wife to Barack and a mother to their children. It has been said that she is his advisor and confident, and that he depends on her for loving and generous support. I think that when he picked her to be his partner, he could not have picked a better woman, as they truly compliment each other.

As the next chapter in their life unfolds and the President-elect takes his place in office with is faithful partner by his side, I will continue to keep my eye on Mrs. Obama.... I suspect that her, correction, their best is yet to come. May God bless and protect them.
