Is it important to know the past of the First Lady?

Do you think her background is relevant to the presidency? Why or why not.. There's questions surrounding Obama's past but what about Michelle Obama's do we know enough about her? Do you feel like you knowMichelle Obama? America has a past of being pretty close to the first lady even though realistically they are complete strangers. I always felt like she had a chip on her shoulder during the pre-presidency campaign but feelings isn't enough and I asked nothing more.

I know she was disbarred--voluntary or not, I couldn't discover. There was some kind of scandal about kickbacks with healthcare stuff. She wrote her college thesis about how bad America is. Mrs. Obama and her husband are out to destroy America and so far they've done a pretty good job. I can't believe we have so many people that are stupid enough to have elected someone like our current president.

I gotta admit I'm one of those guilty for getting caught in a stupor over Obama going against my own conscience and if anyone feels responsibly its me and now all i can do is to help expose it but I glad its now rather than later

He was very, very seductive! I finally had to quit watching/listening to either of them and just read the coverage. Whatever the man has, if he could bottle it and sell it he'd never have another worry financially. I'm curious, though. What won you over? Was it the repeated hope and change mantra, his attractive appearance, or maybe you wanted a total change from Bush? I'd like to know, nobody has ever given me a real reason for voting for Mr. Obama.

I was just so sick of "Terrorist alert" "Homeland Security" "Patriot Act" and "War" and by end of Bush's term I was willing to hear anything that promised change but I wanted to vote for the independent party but didn't think that was really giving 'change' a realistic chance so I changed my party to democrat and voted for Obama. I remember the last months of the campaign trail I was hung up on something but when McCain started talking like he still had a war unfinished, the Cold War?, that was enough to confirm my choice in voting for Obama.

I don't think its that important to know everything about her. She is not running the country her husband is. As for the chip on the shoulder I have never noticed that in all the times of seen her. I feel we know enough about her. She seems like a good person, mother, daughter-in-law and wife. I think she is very well rounded and very smart. In fact one of the smartest first ladies besides Hillary Clinton.

..Well, for me, it's not necessary to bring out the past.. It's already a history.. What is more important is today and the future.. I believe everybody deserves a second chance and if ever Michelle Obama commit mistakes in the past, it is not a guarantee that she will repeat that mistake again.. everybody commits mistake.. So why bother for the past when it has nothing to do with to day or tomorrow?
