We need to get a few more issues of the print mag over to the Washington Post. This in from Chris Cillizza:
Amid the non-stop coverage of the Democratic presidential race, one figure has largely been overlooked: Michelle Obama.
The oversight is easy to understand. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, are larger than life figures whose every utterance is analyzed and scrutinized for clues about the state of their marriage and their respective feelings toward one another at any given moment.
It’s almost impossible to compete that sort of full-court coverage and, in truth, the Obamas are likely not envious the amount of attention the Clintons’ relationship draws from the press.
Still, with Sen. Barack Obama maintaining his status as the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, surprisingly little is known about the woman who will be first lady if he can defeat Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) in the fall.
Thankfully, the New Yorker’s Lauren Collins has penned a piece that addresses this dearth of information about Michelle Obama.
I think he missed the Mark Steyn cover piece.
