I think it is fine to be leery of Michelle Obama and her husband because of their liberal persuasion but it is foolish to assume that she didn't deserve to be at Princeton. Not all black affirmative action candidates are underqualified just as not all female affirmative action candidates are underqualified. IMHO she may have experienced a certain snobby, you're not a member of the club, type reaction from the white liberal elites at Princeton.

I don't believe that she got everything handed to her. I read a piece about her parents who were very hard working blue collar type people who believed in education and made their children's education a focus of their family life. It is possible to believe that there are racist people in America without hating the country, you know. IMHO stereotyping her as a certain type of black may not help us to determine who she really is and what her husband's candidacy means for our country.

Did you read her senior thesis? Did you know she had never been proud of America in her adult life?

It was Michelle herself who said that she did not have the test scores to get into the schools she attended.
