Michelle Obama has played an influential role in her husband's campaign, and is certain to do the same if he is elected president. This work examines her astonishing career--covering her undergraduate years at Princeton, her studies at Harvard Law School, and her tenure at a prestigious Chicago law firm.
From Martha Washington and Abigail Adams to Laura Bush, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Nancy Reagan, first ladies have long fascinated Americans practically as much as their supposedly more influential husbands. From Lady Bird Johnson’s highway beautification initiative to Jacqueline Kennedy’s White House renovation to Barbara Bush’s literacy project—and let’s not forget Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” program—first ladies have captivated and enthralled the voting public for 200 years. Michelle Obama has played an influential role in her husband’s campaign, and is certain to do the same during his presidency. Michelle Obama: First Lady of Hope examines, for the first time, her astonishing career—from her undergraduate years at Princeton, where she majored in African Studies, to her studies at Harvard Law School, where she obtained a Juris Doctor degree. This fascinating book will further address her influence on her husband, her role in his presidential campaign, and her political beliefs. Michelle Obama is sure to be one of the most intriguing and influential First Ladies in history. She first met Barack Obama when she was asked to serve as his mentor at a prestigious Chicago law firm. She and Barack were the only African-Americans. The couple married in 1992. She is her husband’s closest advisor. A Chicago native, she has attracted much media attention for her candor and frankness. This trait will serve her well in the White House, where no move or statement goes unnoticed.
