Michelle Under a Microscope.
"Michelle Obama is already bearing the weight of national scrutiny and expectations -- all the while insisting her first aim is simply to be mom-in-chief to daughters Sasha and Malia," reports The Ottawa Citizen.
Our neighbors to the north discuss how the world is scrutinizing her every move for insight into the values of American women. Obama's pre-inaugural moves thus far have been parental, rather than towards an issue such as "working class women" which would reflect her blue-collar roots.
According to the Citizen, some have wondered if Obama's declaration of becoming the "Mom in Chief" is to avoid the pitfalls Hillary Clinton faced by embracing such an active policy role during her husband's first term.
