The Curmudgeon Video of the Week: The Coolest First Lady Ever

This is a new feature of The Four-Eyed Curmudgeon:  every Saturday he will present one of his favorite YouTube clips.

He hopes you like them, isn’t overly concerned if you don’t, and welcomes suggestions for future installments of “The Curmudgeon Video of the Week.”  (But “TED” clips are not welcome.)

The first clip is about our First Lady.  Love her or loathe her, Michelle Obama is by far the coolest of our First Ladies – even cooler than Dolly Madison, who launched her own brand of ice cream.

The Curmudgeon would like to see Barbara Bush, or even Laura Bush, try THIS.

See for yourself here.
