Description - Michelle Obama in her Own Words by Michelle Obama

The election of Barack Obama has brought worldwide attention not only to what his policies will be, but to what kind of First Lady Michelle Obama will be. Throughout the long campaign season, Michelle Robinson Obama garnered a good amount of attention, kudos and criticism about her words, actions, even her appearance, but few people know what kind of role she will play once she settles into the White House. One clue is to examine her words and statements of the past, and the proposed book Michelle Obama In Her Own Words will show readers who are eager to learn more about Americas new history-making First Lady. Michelle Obama In Her Own Words will be a book that contains 200-250 quotations arranged in approximately 75 different categories. A short introduction and biography of the new First Lady will precede the quotes. Drawing on quotations from a variety of newspaper and magazine articles, transcripts, speeches, and TV interviews and profiles, the quotations date from Michelles career as a high-powered corporate lawyer in Chicago and her high-powered executive jobs in the Chicago Mayors office and at the University of Chicago, up through the election of November 5th, 2008.
Rogak locates and organizes the funny, fascinating, inspiring (and occasionally controversial) words of our future First Lady, on topics such as * Abortion * Affirmative Action * Balancing career and family * Baracks safety * Being compared to Jackie Onassis * Her childhood * Her critics * Her fashion sense * Hillary Clinton * Iraq * Racism * Rev. Jeremiah Wright * Sarah Palin * Terrorism * The elitist tag * The Presidential campaign * The role of the First Lady * Women who have influenced her
