Along with Ann's post of the Salon article about Michelle Obama, a post by Malena at Racewire also has some really good analysis.

She says:
Everybody's been talking about Michelle Obama these days. Since she announced her decision to leave her high-ranked job at the University of Chicago hospitals to join Barack Obama on the campaign, she's had more time to make speeches and do interviews.
In the process, top journalists continue asking her to explain what it means for her husband Barack Obama to be a Black man running for presidency.
And every time, Mrs. Obama slam dunks the answer and offers stronger race analysis than Mr. Barack. Overall, she uses less political correctness to interrogate the issues. And I love her for it. She ought to be campaigning for her own presidency.
