I love this photo. It is one of those images that sends a message of support and encouragement without saying a word.

I love the red and blue color scheme. Both ladies have nice dresses. I am a huge fan of both of them.

The nicest thing about this photo is that they look real. I have never known a VP's wife to have such an active part with the first lady.

They look wonderful...but isn't there just ONE First Lady in D.C.??? I'm just saying...God bless Mrs. Obama, God bless the First family and God bless America.

Love, love, love, LOVE THIS PHOTO!!! Even if you had no clue who they were, wouldn't you just want to get to know these two ladies?

I'm not crazy about pleats on Mrs. O, but I love the red color, I like the way she is posing. Dr. B is sharp, as always. I love that blue dress - the cut, the color, the length.

(And oh, how the 'appropriate police' will be apoplectic about Michelle's bare arms and Jill's bare knees! The horror.... LOLOL)

TERRIFIC!!! I know there is only one First Lady...but in my book, they are BOTH First Ladies
The colors of their dresses are patriotic and the photo is just ooozing their love and respect for each other. Two beautiful women indeed!

Love it. The picture exudes confidence and sisterhood and real commitment to the USA whilst wearing colours of the American flag. These women are unstoppable.

Oh I just love this. The obvious bond and respect they have for one another is so incredible. Mrs. Obama is the most incredible First Lady ever. She confidently shares the spotlight and that is what true leadership is all about. BRAVO!

There are no words to express the pride and joy I feel, in my heart, looking at these two magnificent ladies!

Brava - Mrs. Michelle Obama!

Brava - Dr Jill Biden!

fantastic. I love that they have the cover of Parade talking about military families. No other administration has brought more attention to the families than this one. They walk the walk.

Michael Kors has been my favorite designer for the longst time, and she looks absolutley STUNNING in this, he does red so well, and she look lovely in red!
Is it bad that i want Pres. Obama to get re-elected just so i can gush over 4 more years of Mrs. Obama's lovely wardrope?
