I saw a small part of an interview with Michelle and, although I would not agree with many of her views, I find her to be a strong and lovely woman. And I especially admire how she cared for her family in sometimes very trying times; shielding your young daughters while teaching/guiding them through often disparate events shows the level of skill, empathy, insight, and prudence required to be a mother in such a situation.
She did say that she would miss the White House - after all, her girls grew up there; eight years is a good chunk of their lives. She also talked about missing the staff, being taken care of so well, and surrounded by people who love you. It would have to be a huge adjustment, I would think, to leave such a place. I wish her and her family well.
