Tag Archives: Obamas reaction to victory

obama is president-elect and girls’ chauffeur.

The Obamas sat down with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft on Friday for the first post-election interview which airs tonight! at 7 pm! on CBS! Below, an impossibly sweet clip of future first lady Michelle discussing her reaction to her husband’s victory:

Isn’t it nice to know that in just a few short months the White House will have a confident, intelligent, graceful first lady again? Laura Bush may have been the most agreeable part of W.’s tenure but she never embraced the role of First Lady in the way that I think Michelle will. Where she was a sweet, and kind librarian, Michelle will be an outspoken and courageous leader.

In the interview, President-elect Obama also discusses protecting homeowners from foreclosure, aiding the auto industry, his relationship with Treasury Secretary Henry “Hank” Paulson, and the writings of Abraham Lincoln. This is important stuff, don’t miss it!
