    You know, I was never a Hillary fan…but she has really grown into her new role and I think she looks very happy.
    They both look wonderful.

    I concur, they both look fabulous, full of joy and confidence. I didn’t realize Hillary was so petite.

    I so admire these two women! Aren’t we the fortunate ones to have them working for us! My admiration is deep for the adult way the Clintons and Obamas have worked together after the primaries, too. Never have we heard one snarky word from either one about the other one. True class….real grownups, gracious people. What a contrast to so much else.

    To our First Lady, Michelle Obama, that Is a beautiful dress, and you wear It well. You are wearing the dress, and It looks stunning on you :-).

    Yeah, I had just about lost my love for Hillary when she was Campaigning, and competing against President Obama, she got a bit nasty for a bit, gave me a feeling of dislike for her. However, I’m so very happy that somehow, and through It all, that our “Great President” was able to Include her In his Administration. And as FLOTUS puts It, Hillary Clinton Is doing one “Heck” of a good job as Secretay of State. I do applaude her, I think she does her job quite well. I’m also happy that Hillary Clinton accepted the job as Secretary Of State. I think that It’s mighty BIG of the TWO of them, to let by-gones be by-gones. It’s a great example for the American People. We need to be able to “FORGIVE”, and move on.

    But yes, They really are two “GREAT” Women, doing what they each do best :-).

    Yes, how satisfying to be able to claim these two brilliant, grounded women as our own among the myriads of courageous women around the world.

    It is a wonderful example of Pres. Obama and Hilary to put aside the competition and join together for the good of this nation. Michelle and Hilary are two great examples of women who born in a free country have risen to the top in their unique way and I love the pictures of them together. They are radiant.

    I am so touched by the picture of Ghulam Sughra of Pakistan as she looks at Michelle. Her eyes are so beautiful and full of respect. Having a First Lady of Color raises the hopes of many women of the world.

      You too, eh, Tien? I burst out laughing before I even started to read the thread. 🙂

      Like others have mentioned, I really do see a far more relaxed HRC as she has blossomed in her role as SOS. I guess our President really does bring out the ‘adult’ in those who work with him (at least, he does IF they have it in them).
