President Obama talks triumphs
President Barack Obama will be facing voters once again on November 6 to see if he will be able to hold on to his current position. Even if the votes come in against him, many feel there is no question that he has worked to help bring the country together. Rolling Stone Magazine writers recently got candid with the President to discuss what he considers milestones in his presidency as well as what goals he has in mind should he get re-elected this fall.
According to the source, Obama feels his presidency was one of the first ones in a long time to get younger generations interested in making the country better. He also admitted that he hopes his rise to the top will encourage other young children to embrace people of all color, as being the first African American president is a huge milestone for black Americans.
"When I travel around the country, a lot of people remark on how inspiring seeing an African-American president or an African-American first lady must be to Black boys and girls, how it must raise their sense of what's possible in their own lives," Obama told the magazine. "That's hugely important - but you shouldn't also underestimate the fact that there are a whole bunch of little white girls and white boys all across the country who just take it for granted that there's an African-American president. That's the president they're growing up with, and that's changing attitudes."
Obama's message is certainly helping his campaign, but having a fashionable first lady is also a plus. Michelle Obama was voted one of Time Magazine's "All-Time" 100 Fashion Icons. According to the fashion experts who created the list, Michelle Obama is able to mix class, sass and women's urban clothes, proving she's got a definite style all her own. One of her staples - floral print - has been popping up across the entertainment industry this spring.
"Floral print dresses have become one of Michelle Obama's 'Mom in chief' signatures," the style editors at TIME agreed.
