Michelle Obama Named the World’s Most Powerful Woman
The First Lady snagged the top spot of Forbes’ list of the world’s 100 most powerful women.
No, it’s not because of her killer arms. Michelle Obama has been given the number one spot on Forbes‘ list of “The World’s Most Powerful Women” because of how effective she’s been as the First Lady. Forbes writes:
“A fashion icon and an athletic mother of two, she’s Jackie Kennedy with a law degree from Harvard and street sense from Chicago’s South Side. She’s also effective: In response to her Let’s Move! campaign against childhood obesity, companies like Coca-Cola, Kellogg and General Mills have pledged to reduce the calorie content of their foods by 2012.”
So, who did Mrs. O beat out? Well Oprah Winfrey is #3, Hillary Clinton is #5, Lady Gaga is #7, Beyonce is #9, and Sarah Palin is #16.
You must be proud, Michelle!
