Hillary should count herself lucky to have the support of Michelle.

I have featured Michelle in one of my recent articles: "5 Figure Skating performances that always make me cry": http://www.ifigureskating.com/5-figure-skating-performances-that-always-make-me-cry/ I hope you will enjoy ;)

Great choices. Shen and Zhou, 2003 Worlds! :rock:

Well, let me dredge poor old Michelle up from page 4 oblivion... ;)

Here are Michelle and husband Clay Pell (right) hosting a fancy-schmancy Hillary Clinton fundraiser at one of the fabled Newport (Rhode Island) oceanfront mansions. Also pictured are U.S. Congressmen Joe Kennedy (Massachusettes), left, and David Cicilline (Rhode Island), open shirt.

And here is Michelle sailing (with her sister, not pictured), on the bay.

Here the Beach Boys perform at the function, but Michelle's view is blocked by 6'9" Karl Malone. :) I wonder if they sang "California Girl"?

Michelle and Suoerman

Michelle is keynoting four Hillary Clinton fundraisers on behalf of the Asian American and Pacific Islanders political action group, one each in San Francisco, Los Angeles area, Washington, D.C. and New York.

But more to the point, poster Rick in San Jose on the MK forum found these two picture to juxtapose. (michelle recently lost her dog and is in the process of adopting a new one.)

Here's Michelle backstage at the performance yesterday of the American Ballet Theatre, with principal ballerina Misty Copeland and Nigerian-American actress Uzo Aduba (she plays Crazy Eyes on Orange is the New Black). Copeland recently became the first African-American principal dancer at ABT.

https://twitter.com/ABTBallet/status/658388855276589056

The ABT opened their season with some original pieces set to music (not originally for ballet) of various composers. There was one set to my fave, Johann Nepomuk Hummel, student of Mozart and the most famous piano virtuoso of his time. (With a name like Johann Nepomuk Hummel, he had to be good.:) Hummel was named after the Czech saint Johann Nepomuk, who was martyred by the historical "Good King Wenceslas" who threw him into the river for refusing to reveal what the queen told him in Confessional.)

Just a heads up that TSL interviewed the Kween a few days ago in NY. Not sure when it's going to be posted but they've been teasing it on their Instagram.

That's a nice 'get' for them. I guess Jenny Kirk did compete around the same time/period. Their interviews are IMO their best product. Certainly haven't seen them all but I enjoyed the one with Sandra Bezic.
