But Enough about Me . . .

You too can be Michelle Obama:

“One of the things that my mom always said — because people ask her all the time, ‘What did you do to create Michelle Obama?’” Mrs. Obama told the audience. “And the one thing my mom has always said, and I agree, she said, ‘You know, Michelle and Barack aren’t new.’ She says, ‘Michelle and Barack are not unique.’ She says, ‘There are thousands of Michelle and Barack Obamas all over this nation, in neighborhoods and communities all over the place. And she is absolutely right. She is absolutely right. There is no magic to us.”

Are there really thousands of Michelle and Barack Obamas? Or does it just seem like that from the TV interviews and magazine covers?
