Re "Michelle Obama in spotlight's glare," Feb. 21 The fact that Michelle Obama tells it like it is -- that America has repeatedly fallen short of the vision we have for our place in the world -- seems to be a cause for celebration, not criticism. How can we be proud to be Americans when we torture, invade sovereign nations, ignore the plight of our underserved population and promote policies that line the coffers of U.S. corporations? How can we say children are our most important asset, yet continually refuse to accept responsibility for their health, education and the environment?

Michelle Obama found herself at the center of a political tempest Tuesday after telling a Wisconsin audience while campaigning for husband Barack Obama that "for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country." Conservatives pounced. On his blog, Commentary magazine Editor John Podhoretz wrote: "Can it really be there has not been a moment . . . when she felt proud of her country?

Flu season is upon us, and one casualty is the good old-fashioned handshake. Yes, that's right. Nearly 3 in 10 Americans are reluctant to shake your hand because they fear they will catch your germs, according to a survey released Wednesday. You see, germs lurk everywhere. As a result, 21% of those surveyed said they hesitated to shake someone's hand in a bar or restaurant; 19% demurred in a store; 18% kept their hands to themselves at the gym (though presumably plenty of other people touched the StairMaster before them)

Sen. John McCain reported income of $405,409 last year, but the money he spent on charitable contributions, wages to household staff, alimony and taxes ate up most of that -- showing how his wife, Cindy, helped support a wealthy lifestyle. McCain on Friday released his 2007 and 2006 tax returns, but not those of his wife, whose income from ownership of a beer distributor far exceeds $1 million, according to financial disclosure statements filed previously in the Senate.

Barack Obama's wealth has more than doubled during his presidential campaign -- and has shot up tenfold since he entered the U.S. Senate three years ago, his financial disclosure filed Friday shows. Obama is the least wealthy of the three major presidential candidates. But with advances and royalties from two bestselling books, Obama's assets were worth between $2.02 million and $7.

Just in time for the nominating conventions, a pair of new books paint the presidential candidates as two-dimensional politicians, capture them in various states of undress and reveal what they've long kept hidden in their closets. What's more, the books depict both as small men -- about 8 inches tall in their stocking feet. That's because the super-flat senators are the sartorial subjects of renowned paper doll artist Tom Tierney, who casts the candidates and their spouses as ready-to-dress paper people, each with about half a dozen wardrobe changes (Oddly, Barack Obama's daughters Malia and Natasha are included -- each with a single cold-weather outfit -- but John McCain's brood of seven is absent)
