Michelle Obama the new Teresa Heinz?

Michelle Obama is the new motormouth Mabel of the Democratic party, often making statements that catch the headlines quicker than her Presidential hopeful husband, Barack.

Obama has said of his wife that she is smarter than he is, stronger than he is, and gives better speeches than he does, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

On a trip to Iowa last week, the Sun Times reports that Michelle “was a firebrand, expressing a determined passion for her husband’s campaign, talking straight from the heart with eloquence and intelligence.”

Telling her audience that her husband bucked the fears of running for the highest office, she managed to get a few licks in at Hillary Clinton, his biggest obstale to the presidential nomination from the Democrats.

Michelle said, “I am tired of being afraid . . . I don’t want my girls to live in a country that is based on fear.”  Michelle hammered the point that family values ruled the Obama house, and added “if you can’t run your own house, you can’t run the White House.” It was interpreted by politcal observers as a veiled swipe at Clinton, whose husband Bill has a well-earned reputation with the ladies.

The Sun Times reports as time has progressed, Michelle’s speeches have become “stronger, funnier and more personable.”
