Louise J. Esterhazy of W Magazine's Last Laugh would like the comparisons of the Obamas and the Kennedys to cease. She writes in the January 2008 issue :
"Who cares what she wears and how she decorates? The stupid ones who compare Michelle O to Jackie O miss the point. Camelot is so far in the past it's another history. And even the Kennedy Camelot wasn't a paradise, as we've come to learn."
