China’s First Lady Seeking Michelle Obama Popularity
China’s new first lady, Peng Liyuan, made her debut this week to rave reviews by the Chinese, who hope Peng’s style and grace make her the East’s answer to the formidable Mrs. O.
“We've always looked forward to having an elegant first lady that's presentable to the outside world," a Chinese official told CNN. "Now we have one."
"The U.S. has Michelle (Obama), we have Peng Liyuan," wrote micro-blogger @mlxftmilixiaofantuan.
