    The Obama campaign would be well advised to use Michelle relentlessly. An amazing asset. When will the Michelle 2016 buzz begin?

    If I recall her dismay over a number of compromises with the right and betrayals of the left, her policy instincts surpass his. The marginalized female faction – Romer, Warren, M.O. – is like the Administration-That-Could-Have-Been.
