    Just watched a report on Michelle Obama's secret shopping adventures. She often goes out in disguise to do some shopping. So far she has not been recognized. Is it safe? Is it wise? Or is it understandable and ok for her to want to be like a regular citizen? What are your thoughts?

    Don't care. She is a citizen and can do what she wants as one.

    This is an old story.
    She went to Target...white house aides called the media and told them where she would be...picture shows up showing her as a "regular gal".

    End of Story

    I remember two or so years ago when PMS-NBC was trying to compare Meechelle to Jackie O. That's like comparing Joy Blowhard to Nancy Reagan. I don't recall Jackie Kennedy shopping at "The General Store" back in the 60's. {for those of you kids here under 25(lol), "The General Store" was like a Mini-Wal Mart of the late 1800's, early 1900's.} Most probably were taken down during the 20th century, but they are great historical landmarks if your town is fortunate enough to still keep them maintained.

    Well, considering that her Secret Service detail is always around somewhere, yeah.....it's probably as safe as it can be.

    Besides.........think about this.........if YOU were constantly under the scruitiny of the world, and living in a large glass fishbowl, wouldn't YOU want to get out from under the thumb of everyone once in a while and just go do something normal like shopping?

    I know I would.
