    Well I think they are all different, with different styles and look. I think
    Mrs Obama can be very attractive, depending on her hair style and dress.
    She can also be kind of mundane, based on some of her past photos.

    I think comparisons with Jackie is a little over the top, Michelle Obama will have her own scene and will no doubt be positive.

    Michelle is a young First Lady, so she'll be able to pull of trendy, youthful styles. I ujnderstand the fashion world is looking forward to Michelle & her daughters being in the White House.

    I don't really care how well she dresses or what school the Obamas will choose for their daughters or what dog they're getting. All I want is for Obama to be a good president.

    I think she's a class act and will make an amazing First Lady and represent the U.S.A. really well. I think she can look very attractive at times, not so much at others, but she is always very likable and endearing. I really hope she looks incredible tonight and that her gown isn't as over-the-top as the one she wore election night. I also hope they do something a bit more elegant with her hair tonight.

    I think it's a sad commentary about the state of gender equality that the first thing any woman is judged on is her looks and clothes, no matter the position. Whether it's "OMG Hillary is in a pantsuit!" or "Michelle is so elegant" it saddens me.

    She's a talented, brilliant, competent person. I'm not dating her or married to her, why the hell should I care what she looks like? C'mon newspeople, how about we report some *news.*

    The media said "elegant" and we're saying "attractive." They aren't the same.

    Frankly, I never thought Jackie Kennedy was all that physically attractive. Undoubtedly elegant, cultured and well-dressed, but not a beauty. And at the time she first did live TV interviews in the 1950s, while her husband was a Senator, she was very awkward and lacking in confidence, her elegance hard to detect. She later became a great First Lady, a standard for those who followed her.

    I think Michelle Obama will do just fine. Like other First Ladies she'll grow into the job, and I don't think Americans will have anything to be ashamed about.

    First Lady story, and how it came to deal with male sexual promiscuity:

    In the 1920s, then-President Calvin Coolidge and his wife Grace were visiting a chicken farm. They were taken on separate tours, and while Mrs. Coolidge was being shown a chicken pen, she was informed that their roosters could mate many times a day. "Be sure to tell that to Mr. Coolidge when he gets here," she replied.

    When the President was subsequently told this fact, he asked "With the same hen?" "Oh, no, Mr. President, with many different hens in a row," was the answer.

    "Well, tell THAT to Mrs. Coolidge," responded the President.

    From this story has come the term "Coolidge Effect" for the observation that human males will have sex more frequently if presented with a succession of different females, than the lesser number of times they will have sex with the same female in an identical time period. This has fueled speculation about whether men are inherently able to be faithful to one woman (or perhaps man in the case of gays), or if sexual promiscuity is the more natural human male behavior.

    If the yellow ensemble she's wearing to the Inauguration is an indication of things to come, I think she's going to hit it out of the park. She looks fantastic!
