So what part of "Conventional Wisdom" do you not understand? Since you obviously do not read Newsweek every week as I do, the "Conventional Wisdom Watch" is a section in every week's magazine where they give an up or down arrow for each person or entity based on the CONVENTIONAL WISDOM. It is not one persons opinion, but based on the prevailing opinion of a number of people -- thus it is called CONVENTIONAL WISDOM.

Who cares what season it is. Michelle is an inspiration to millions of out of shape Americans.

She has proved that a woman can work full time and have children and still keep herself in shape. Having kids does not automatically make you out of shape. She should bare those arms of hers and be proud.

Unless you have a medical condition, there is no excuse anymore to be out of shape! Get exercising America. That goes for the men too!

Finally, a fit first couple.

I heard on the radio that we need to be "inspired" by Michele Obama's arms......I think that is an odd thing to say....she does have good arms but I do not think they are "inspirational". Has there been any big old fat out of shape first families??

I don't think they meant "her arms", I think they meant her and Barack together should be inspiring. That fact that they are both in shape and exercise regularly.

And regarding your last sentence, Many of them were fat and/or out of shape.

I should add, their age is also a factor, they are younger than most of the previous first couples. I'm not saying Barbara Bush should of been on the treadmill everyday.

Hopefully they will continue to let us all bare arms.
