Jeff, Saying that somebody is 'racist' because they claimed that they were a great model for a African-Americans is absurd. She is indeed that, and I believe the obvious undertone is that she is also a great model for women, which seems implied.
By your logic saying that she is a good example to "all women", could be deemed as sexist. Why isn't she a good example for males?
This particular honor and her work towards the fight and endemic struggle with childhood obesity in America is a noble cause for anybody to undertake. Although Michelle's major project is child health she has been rather outspoken about the value of education as well. Whether that is one the other commenter was alluding to or she meant 'well educated' in regards to health, who knows. I appreciate the attempt at progressive equality and correctness but relax and let positive be positive.

Marnie, First, I am appalled by your racist comment. Why is is that she is only an example for african-americans? You add, "It's upstanding that other women admire you as well." Are you kidding? Why couldn't she just be a good example - period - to all women. Second, her agenda is the health of children. It was Laura Bush whose agenda was he education of children. Get your facts straight.

No politics at the Nick???? Where was Laura Bush's award for her eight years of work on childhood iliteracy? Oh right, I forgot, wrong party.
