Michelle Obama is looking particularly good tonight on 20/20.

Calm, rational, intelligent, capable.

Back on track?

Did anyone else watch this?

Seriously, the chick looks presidential and she would, for sure, pack the polls.

Oh No, not another dynasty like the Clintons, Bush. While she does look presidential to me, I donít feel she has her haeart into politics. I also think we need new blood in both parties.

We have a terrible problem with this in Michigan. Politics is NOT a family business!

We also have a terrible problem with people "serving" too long.

We recently had Mr. Dingell retire.  He served 60 years in the house of Reps.  He was in there when my father was a child!

So I would suggest the people in the USA & Michigan need to get rid of political dynasties and lifetime politicians.

People don't like to give up power once they have obtained it.  I'd love to see 6-year limits for both the house (3 terms) and Senate (1 term).  And make it a volunteer job like the state house and state senate in NH where they are paid $100 per year.  Get rid of pensions too.

Get rid of the gerrymandering, get rid of all the ways representatives can profit (put a freeze on their active trading/investing), get rid of the healthcare benefits, etc.

Essentially get rid of all the old boys club crap.
