    Greetings from London where Michelle is revered.

      Hello Judith in London!!! A wonderful circle of TOD family met last night in Philadelphia to see and hear our revered and beloved #ForeverFLOTUS and we missed you! Alycee & her lovely Mom;PrettyFoot -“and her lovely mom; Terri A.D. ; Wanda Camm; an
      me! She was magnificent!!! @Phoebe Robinson interviewed her beautifully and creatively and the crowd was rapt and moved and did not want to go home. So much love wonder connection. We all felt like TOD was connected in a deep sweet way.

        Alycee and her mom, Nancie, Wanda, Terri, my mother and me…we were all in the Wells Fargo Ctr along with nearly 20,000 other mostly women and men…We were all there to witness the extraordinary and beautiful book tour of Michelle Obama…Becoming..
        The crowd was diverse but mostly African American women…There is something special about being among crowds of Black Women…who all seem to have that Michelle Obama glow about us…smile..Reminded me of the vibe that was the Million Women’s March…there were older women and younger women…generations of family….and friends..
        Some were dressed in Afrocentric fabric…”Beautiful”

        Becoming-some things that Michelle Obama said in her discussion that really stood out for me..
        Embrace your story…

        Define who you are-But know that story is never really finished becaused it is ever evolving…

        Work to become your Best self…

        That you are never a finished product..that there is Always room for growth…

        Something I took notice of…
        Hillary Clinton was always always villified for wearing pantsuits…her femininity was challenged and folks even blamed her for her husband’s infidelity saying that she was not “woman” enough to keep her husband from straying…

        Michelle Obama has worn a pantsuit for the first 4 engagements of her book tour…and she wore them well…yessssssss she did….HA!

        I love Michelle Obama…She is a Phenomenal Woman

        feeling so grateful to have been able to be in that place last night…

            smilin

            i can not express how wonderful it was …and how wonderful it was to share this experience with members of the TOD family. We have been on this journey with the Obamas and with each other…i feel ever grateful for being part of this community…

            till the next time Nancie…i would love to go to DC…tot he Portrait Gallery to see the portraits of Pres Obama and FL Michelle Obama

    I just saw Michelle Obama on the Colbert Show. What a jolt of happiness she brought me. I am reminded that at my now age of 70 she will be my forever First Lady, and Barack will be my forever President. I feel so grateful that I have lived when their graced lives have been with us. They are both an American and a world Treasure, for all humanity.

    I was not a fan of his, but this is pretty classy.

    • 68 0388jojothecat
      December 1, 2018 at 8:54 am

      I was more of a fan AFTER he left office. I did not care for the people around him especially Darth Cheny. One thing I know of ALL past Presidents, Republican or Democratic is that they LOVED this country and would not sell it out to a foreign country, that they believed in protecting the Constitution and worked within the laws of this country. May he rest in eternal peace and that he is with his Barbara.

        Yes, a lot of us did not agree with George H.W. Bush’s politics. But it would not occur to any of us that he would basically sell out his country to the Russians or any other foreign power.

        Thanks for all the information TODers continue to give each other and others.

      Dr. Rachel is such a marvelous fearless educator and sleuth. How looong has been this journey we’re on together! She didn’t waver and neither did Lawrence, Joy, Hayes, Velshi, Ari et al. So many hard workers (on here as well).

    Needed inspiration and to remember they way we were just a few years ago. Watched the medal of freedom ceremony for our Joey and the last PEN interview with Barack and Michelle. Next, his farewell address. This will be the first time seeing it after watching the original broadcast. My heart was too broken to do this before but it is now possible because we are finally seeing light and the beginning of the end of our national nightmare. Watching Michelle and hearing her talk about the hope and the optimism that she still has for the country and to see how she has been received on her book tour have given me life.

          Can’t understand (other than the usual reasons we know) why NOBODY tries to do something about it … I mean I’m not surprised he has no one in his family who would even know what to do, but seriously how can anybody sit and talk with him or work for him or whatever, without mentioning this stuff? We’ve seen worse of a decline just in the last two years. I just want him off the national stage.

      With President Obama being 15yrs younger than both Bill and GW, we may have only one or two presidents living at some time in the future. I truly believe that WH orange occupant will not live or stroke out before his presidency is over.

    is suppose Pence is just biding his time…

    • 122 Jey
      December 1, 2018 at 5:39 pm

      I have always thought that Pence was biding his time but surely Pence is tainted especially since he is Manafort’s man, not to mention lied about not knowing about Flynn and Russian connection – even though he was briefed a out it (I believe).

      • 123 desertflower
        December 1, 2018 at 5:43 pm

        Like I said the other day, Pence is in this mess too. Come January 2019, next in line to the Presidency is Soon to be Speaker Pelosi. That thought keeps me sane

    • December 1, 2018 at 5:44 pm

      Well he’s got any number of things to fret about: Treason, money laundering, misuse of campaign funding, tax and real estate stuff, underage sexual relations, climate change denial (and its relationship to Russian oil sanctions/oil shares), Putin’s bucket list.
      -Plus whatever you just thought of.

    I was puzzled as to why President Obama was in Houston just 3-4 days ago. Then when Pres Obama Mentioned GHW Bush at the Rice University event, I thought, oh well…the 41 was doing just fine.
    Upon reflection, GW Bush’s Twins…Barbara, getting married…just weeks ago. And of course the passing announcement of GHW Bush last night….I truly wondered out loud if 41 wanted to see 44 for something to do with his funeral.
