In addition to wife, mother, attorney, and political campaigner, Michelle Obama is adding blogger to her resume. She joins 15 million American women who already have their own blogs.
Michelle's blog will be carried on the BlogHer network. BlogHer, the online community for women who blog, has 26,000 members and is by far the most well known "meeting place" for women bloggers. Way to reach women voters, Michelle! We think this move is smart, smart, smart, expecially when you consider that women make up 54% of the electorate.
Being tech savvy is nothing new to the Obama camp. The campaign has used web organizing tools, blogging, viral video and text messaging to it's advantage from jump. Michelle's blog is yet another extension of the rock solid tech platform that the campaign has built to spread it's message, combat the the messages of political foes and create a momentum now known as Obama-mania.

AOL's BlackVoices website says that Michelle Obama is "hotter than July." If they mean hotter than July in Washington D.C., well then let us tell you, that's hotter than hell.
The site named Mrs. Obama one of the "20 Sexiest Black Women Over 40," noting:
US magazine recently gave the hottest couple in politics their cover, emblazoned with the headline "Why He Loves Her." Apparently featuring Michelle paid off, as sales of the issue outpaced those for usual tabloid offerings like Jessica Simpson and Heidi Montag. At 44, it seems that America agrees: Mrs. Obama is hotter than July.
Other sexy women on the list include Halle Berry (duh!), Jennifer Beals, Vanessa Williams (she ain't no Ugly Betty), Stacey Dash and Angela Bassett.
