I remember seeing Michelle Obama on TV in this chic bun. It was the day after her big speech at the Democratic Convention and she was calm and relaxed sitting next to her brother, Craig Robinson, who seemed a giant on the TV screen.

The New Yorker magazine recently republished an interview with the Obamas done back in 1996. At the time they were a young married couple living in Chicago, contemplating his interest in politics and her interest in starting a family. Barack Obama's comments on Michelle are telling, almost 13 years later:

BARACK OBAMA: All my life, I have been stitching together a family, through stories or memories or friends or ideas. Michelle has had a very different background—very stable, two-parent family, mother at home, brother and dog, living in the same house all their lives. We represent two strands of family life in this country—the strand that is very stable and solid, and then the strand that is breaking out of the constraints of traditional families, travelling, separated, mobile. I think there was that strand in me of imagining what it would be like to have a stable, solid, secure family life.

I also love this quote from Craig Robinson, Michelle's brother, on Barack Obama:

"We were all worried about, ‘Oh, my god my sister's never going to get married because each guy she's meet, she's gonna chew him up, spit him out. So I was thinking, Barack says one wrong thing and she's going to jettison him."
