babeofthemonthIn honor of the inauguration, we just had to make Michelle Obama our Babe of the Month. Clearly she's not going to be available for an interview but that doesn't mean we can't spend a few minutes talking about what a rockin' lady she is.Michelle Obama is striking to me because, although she is married to arguably the most important man in the world right now, she is so strong in herself that her personality is still very much separate from Barack Obama's. She is not just seen as speaking for her husband, but as a person her own agenda.One of the things I love about Michelle Obama is that she has been involved with social change for so much of her life. While she was at Harvard Law School, she participated in protests to encourage the school to hire more minority faculty members. While at Princeton she wrote her thesis on Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community, taking on this divide and the interesting challenges and questions it raised.If I got the chance to interview Michelle Obama, I would ask her how her thesis related or informed the work that she went on to do as a VP for Community and External Affairs for Chicago Hospitals. Did her thesis also lead to her involvement with Public Allies, a not-for-profit organization which encourages young people to work on social issues through non-profit and government agencies? How does she see the role of first lady as related to these larger issues of community?I like Michelle Obama because to me, she is an intelligent and thoughtful person working to raise a family and find her path in life. I like Michelle Obama because she is more than just the wife of the next president of the United States. Most of all, I like Michelle Obama because she's the first first lady that I can imagine walking into Babeland.Wait - what? How did we get from community activism to sex toys? It may seem a bit presumptuous of me, but Michelle Obama seems like the kind of person who knows that a healthy sex life is an important part of a relationship would want to get her advice (and her sex toys) from experts. As I watched her listening to Americans during the campaign, I imagined that we were standing in Babeland and I was explaining the We Vibe to her. I think she would use the same interested look and gentle head nod and then would ask me about the SaSi.It's possible that this may never happen (how do presidents get sex toys anyway?) but it's always fun to imagine. Even if she never walks through our doors, Michelle Obama is definitely Babeland material.Don't forget about our Inauguration Sale - today and tomorrow in our stores and online.
