There is nothing at all laughable about an American president and his wife visiting Moscow, trying to keep or maintain a relationship with that country.
Then why would Michelle Obama try to upstage
The Russian President’s wife, that is what the Associated Press says will happen..
“Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s wife Svetlana is pious and discreet and met her husband while she was a schoolgirl. She supports charity and the arts, but has assumed no independent voice on issues facing the country. She dresses conservatively, lacking the edgy fashion sense that has attracted a nationwide following for Michelle Obama.”http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090704/ap_on_re_eu/eu_russia_us_first_ladies_8
If you look at the photos at the Yahoo source there are two of Svetlana Medvedev—# 15 and 33. She certainly looks like a very conservative demure person. Also there is another of MO taken from the side in that terrible thing she wore on the 4th which someone on FR described as a sports bra attached to a pillow case. There is no mistaking the weight gain there. I’m surprised she didn’t wear her black or clear belt with that one because it actually would have matched the dress and could have been worn right where she likes it. Maybe she wears them so high up because she paid a small fortune for them and they no longer fit if she puts them at waist level.
