Quote of the Day

"I always thought he would be useful, but I had no idea he was going to be president."First Lady Michelle Obama, on her first impressions of her husband, President Barack Obama. She really cracks me the hell up sometimes.

Just for the hell of it, once again here is one of my favorite ever pictures of the First Couple, whose relationship seems really cool:

The First Lady also had some excellent relationship advice for the girls to whom she was speaking about her husband: "Reach for partners that make you better. Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts. Good relationships feel good, they feel right."

Ten million points for the use of the gender nonspecific "partners."
