    i know this usually wouldn't warrant its own thread, but people have been so eager over the years to label michelle as this and that without any actual proof, so i felt like i had to post this :p (Not that i'm making any claims myself)

    The fact that she is married to a potential democratic gubernatorial candidate has apparently thrown a potential wrench into that concept. :lol: As far as I know, she's never said one way or the other, and has been associated in her diplomatic capacity with both the Bush and Obama administrations. That's a diplomat for you!

    Ha ha! Role model to Role model!

    Very nice picture of the two of them. Height difference means nothing, especially the way Flotus Michelle is leaning into Kween Michelle. :D

    BTW, I believe Michelle Kwan is a patriotic American first and foremost.

    Wow! Michelle looks so young in that photo - she's beaming! She's certainly one of the sport's most inspiring post-skating career transitions ever.

    Thanks for the answer. I thought I heard at some point in the past that she affiliated with the Republican party but maybe I remembered it wrong.

    I guess pursuing a career in diplomacy, you want to 'keep your options open' either way. ;)

    Quite the opposite. She just gets paid by FOX.

    Republicans just don't marry republicans! She can be a republican and marry a democrat. Unless she's like all about not marrying anyone she disagrees with politically.

    It works very well if she conservatively "stands by her man" :lol:

    Would a republican in 2014 really say such warm words about Michelle Obama's achievements/contributions? I don't know any moderate republicans who would come even close :lol:

    And thanks to Twitter, we know she's pro-gay rights, believes in sports diplomacy, and has given shout-outs to Democratic politicians or people woking in progressive fields.
