Michelle Obama got personal with a group of young ladies yesterday at an all-girls school in the UK while her hubby spoke with the British Parliamant. Talking politics, motherhood and love, Mrs. Obama said America is ready for it’s first female president and stressed that while she had no idea her man would one day become the 44th Chief of State, she said his integrity is what attracted her to him. “I knew he was a special person… It was the love that he felt for his mother; his relationship to women; his work ethic ... he wasn't impressed with himself.  And he was funny,” Yahoo! reported.

 

While most of the world crushes on the 49-year-old world leader, his wife admits she wasn’t completely sprung by his fineness. Instead, she said she saw him as having “talent, and he's cute—you know, I always thought he would be useful.” Getting more than she bargained for, Mrs. Obama noted the importance of trusting one’s instincts and leaving boxes out of the love equation. Excellent advice from a woman who snagged the hottest man in the political world.
