Not necessarily a bad thing if true. After all, Laura Bush didn't do much as first lady except encourage people to read (a neverending source of amusement for some of us in light of whom she married). If Michelle Obama is actually accomplishing things from her bully pulpit, I'm fine with her doing it on my dime, so to speak.
