So I’m wondering, is the Tyra Banks Bazaar photo spread supposing herself as a combo-Jackie/Michelle O. in the White House (already) more a plus for the Obama’s (i.e. more power and grace to Michelle) or a negative (evoking double-Harvard elitism; the uppity connotation of having won already; and the “celebrity” meme of doing it for the status and luxury)?
