Heather Cabot wrote an interesting article on this in the Huffington Post entitled "What the Mom-in-Chief Means to Moms."
"Whether you've opted out, opted in, on-ramped, off-ramped and back again, you have to appreciate what a breath of fresh air it is to finally hear a striving Supermom like Obama admit that even she needs to make tough choices when it comes to career and family. By focusing on her self-titled role, "mom-in-chief," for the first year in the White House, she seems to be a woman who understands that having it all doesn't necessarily mean having it all at the same time."Cabot goes on to say,
"By calling herself "mom-in-chief," Obama sends a strong message that being a mom means being a leader, an attribute that mothers often overlook in their parenting roles. By celebrating her position rather than apologizing for it, she connects the notion of leadership beyond the walls of corporate suites and presidential mansions to the homes of average parents."Yeah! I encourage you to read the whole article.
I found it intelligent and well written.
