Michelle And Jackie O: Twins Separated At Birth?

Long before Ted Kennedy endorsed him for president, I've been telling anyone who'll listen that I think that Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, are the contemporary version of Camelot: Barack with his ability to connect with younger generations and inspire hope; Michelle with her formidable intelligence and graceful, sophisticated style. And though I suspect that the people in my life weren't always listening, everyone from the bloggers at Politico to the editors at Ebony agree with me, at least sartorially: Michelle is Jackie 2.0.
