Michelle Obama still unchanged in her new role as First LadyMay 23rd, 2009 - 3:21 pm ICT by ANI
Chicago, May 23 (ANI): US First Lady Michelle Obama says that she has not changed much from her days before she moved to the White House.
She has revealed in the latest edition of Time magazine, which carries a photo of her on its cover, that she hopes people get to see the real her as time goes by.
“I’m pretty much who I’ve been for a long time. So that … I just think that people have the opportunity to see all of who Michelle Obama is over a longer period of time,” the Chicago Sun-Times quoted her as telling the magazine.
“And hopefully, they like what they see. And I think they actually … liked what they saw then. It’s just that … because if that weren’t the case, I don’t think Barack would be president, you know?” she added.
Michelle also said that “there’s a real camaraderie” between her and former First Ladies.
“And I’ve gotten wonderful letters and phone calls and invitations to lunch, and it’s just from every single former first lady who is alive … they’ve reached out,” she said.
“And my sense is that it’s not just me; I think they do this because they know, experience when you’ve got children, that you need support. And that’s very cool, I’d say,” she added. (ANI)
