8. Michelle Obama Saw the Diamond in the Rough
Some might suggest Barack Obama would have never been elected POTUS had it not been for his wife, Michelle. President Obama would agree with those people.
When the couple now known as The Obamas first met they had an attraction for one another, but Barack was rough around the edges when considering Michelle’s spiritually tethered, exceptionally disciplined lifestyle.
Michelle was a Christian, and Barack was open to the idea of a deity, but wasn’t raised in a church-goin’ household. As his faith developed, so did their relationship, and the two married in 1992, and started having babies a few years later.
They are a power couple. Herein lies one of the greatest ironies of Barack Obama the man. No matter how outspoken he is about being a Christian, all the oddball, Jesus-claiming types, chase him with verbal tridents and rhetoric proclaiming his Muslim faith. Michelle doesn’t care.
