Re: Fair point, Clue, but if I were to be held responsible for every idiotic thing my direct reports might tweet/say/think, I'd be screwed. Obama asked her to apologize. Nuff sed.--------
People become excessively judgmental in some of these environments. A little goes a long way.
It pays to think about our own contributions to a situations. That seems like a healthier way to look at relations.
Re: She never claimed she was an expert.. she is an advocate for healthy kid..why aren'tyou? You do NOTHING but post trash about the obama's every single day. She is a woman in the public eye who can use that light to shine on projects that are dear to her. It is WHAT FIRST LADIES DO! Laura Bush was a literacy advocate. Lady Bird Johnson was big on flowers and beautifying roadsides and parks..what is your problem? Michelle Obama is also an aadvocate for military families..and your problem with that is?--------
I think role models are important. Whatever positive habits can be instilled is great.
Public celebrityhood has its costs today. Unfortunately! Public scrutiny is higher today than it has been because of the Internet and just general disillusion with leadership. Criticism has become excessive.
My only qualm has been is that far too much is about image and shaped by public relations outfits and coaches. It doesn't lead to a sense of reality and proportion, especially if the content is scourged from others and on the Internet.
