My Case Rested?
Sometimes, it’s almost like one of those scenes in old movies with the spinning newspapers tracing a character’s meteoric rise in headlines:
He’s more powerful; she’s more popular.
He sells millions of books he’s written; she sells millions of magazines she’s posed for.
He gets more Internet clicks — except when she does.
There are plenty of ways to score a theoretical Barack vs. Michelle celebrity smackdown.
But if one is to engage in this just-for-fun dissection of the phenomobama, it must be stipulated that Barack is the president, which does give him certain advantages.
Then again, Michelle has the fashion factor working for her. And motherhood. And those sculpted arms. And, she doesn’t have to tackle sticky issues like cutting the federal budget.
Yup, that slashing of federal expenditures sure does weigh President Obama down. Displaying his pecs on a few magazine covers would probably make up the difference.
