The Women Behind Obama and Biden

When you look at political candidates running for President it is hard not to notice the woman behind the man. What is that old saying, behind every great man is a greater woman. Something like that. Behind the Democrat ticket for President is two outstanding beautiful woman and they prove it out with actions and not just words when it comes to the children involved in the campaign for President. That is a key point for this post, children.

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden are two very well educated woman that are married to serious politicians that some people call elitists. I’ll talk about that aspect after the article linked to below. When it comes to being Mom’s there is nothing elitist about a kids slumber or pajama party hosted by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden while there husbands did what they needed to do during the DNC convention. Over at People (who’d of thunk I would ever quote People with politics) they have an interesting story on the women behind the candidates of Obama and Biden…

Michelle Obama's Campaign Secret: Kids' Slumber Parties
By Chris Willard

How do you keep 15 kids entertained on the campaign trial?

If you're Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, you throw a slumber party.

The night of Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention, her daughter Malia, 10, said she needed to make an announcement.

"I was like, 'What? Was I bad?' " Obama tells Access Hollywood in a series of interviews to air Sept. 25, 26 and 29. "She said no, but we have to have a sleepover tonight."

The sleepover happened the next night and the guest list included Biden's granddaughters and about 15 children of campaign staff.

At a recent campaign stop in Allentown, Penn., Obama and Biden chatted about how they had formed an immediate bond.

"It was just one of those magical moments where we spent a week together and after that week, you know Michelle put her arms around me and I put my arms around her and she said, 'I love you,' and I said, 'I love you, too,' " Biden recalls. "We just clicked."

For starters we can say that these two woman have guts to host a slumber party for fifteen kids. Having five daughters we have had our fair share of large sleepover nights aka pajama parties with one or more friends from several of the girls and I wanted to pull my hair out. My wife handled the nightly events with the expertise of a top executive Mom. The bottom line is that they didn’t dump the kids on staffers and matter of fact, many of the kids were from the staff! If you ask me, and you won’t, these two mom’s handled the convention perfectly not only on stage but with the children associated with the campaign. I’m looking forward to seeing the interviews from Access Hollywood with Michelle Obama September 25, 26 and 29th. It’s nice to see the inside of the woman behind the man that could sit behind the desk in the Oval Office.

Getting back to the “Elitist” point of view that people are labeling Barack and Michelle Obama, I think it is good for the country to present our brightest and strongest candidate for President on the Democratic ticket. My brother offered this advice when people use the “Elitist” label when it comes to Obama. When America goes to war we use our “Elite” troops, Navy Seals, Green Beret’s and the list goes on. We use our best assets to attack and win the fight. We use our Elite military power to fight and win the war so how is it wrong that putting up our brightest star in the Democrat Party is wrong because they call him an “Elitist”? More to the point, why are they not putting the best their party has to offer to defend America?
