First lady Michelle Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Dr Jill Biden attend a DCCC fundraiser in San Francisco, October 25

Politico: There’s something Jill Biden couldn’t say to a crowd of big donors from the San Francisco on Monday night: Congratulations.

Biden’s team, the Philadelphia Phillies, lost the National League pennant to the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night. And instead of wishing the crowd the best, the second lady had Michelle Obama do it.

“Before I begin let me do something that I told Jill that I would do because it was too painful for her to do which is to congratulate you on your World Series bid,” Obama said to cheers and applause from the crowd at the Fairmont Hotel.

“Look, as a [Chicago] Cubs fan, I know how it feels when you haven’t seen the light of the World Series in so long,” the first lady continued. “I know. I know how thrilled this city must be so congratulations and good luck.”

    And never resort to derision, condescension or emasculation, ala Sarah Palin. Strong, intelligent, gracious and accompolished, in addition to being beautiful.
