I want a social worker for president.

I want someone who would be heard and respected, not a pervert

with no self-respect.

I want Michelle Obama for president, someone to actually change the

world in many good ways, what do you say? Imagine all her plans for

America and Angelica, a friend, who hoped for lower college tuitions.

I want an educated man with great qualifications in school, someone to bring

peace into to the world and no violence.

    I agree, I think Michele is a wonderful woman that the country of United States has known for a lot of time. In my opinion most americans trust her and respect her. Since her husband was president she may have already experience in president duties. She loves te country and would never do actions that would harm it negatively. The president elect has no comparison to Michele.

    I agree with your poem. Michelle Obama is a very strong and empowering woman. She is educated and the former first lady, so I think she is highly qualified for the position. In your poem I was confused by your line “I want an educated man…” Her being the first woman president I think is a crucial part in why her presidency would be so important.

    I completely agree with your point and would love to see a woman like that in charge. She is so strong and independent that she not only would be an amazing role model to our generations to come, but to those participating in society today. Michelle Obama has been involved in politics for many years and has even experiences life inside the White House. She would make an outstanding president and would lead our country in a strong and positive direction.

    I really like your message here. She is a perfect candidate for a wonderful president. In the second to last line, you said you wanted a man who was well educated. I was a little confused by this, but overall, wonderful piece.

    I completely agree! Not only would she be the first woman to hold the position of president, she would be the first African American woman to do so. Not only is she extremely qualified for this job, but she already has second hand experience as the commander in chief. She is such a strong, loving, and independent woman who make an excellent president. Lovely poem with an amazing message.

    I, too, want Michelle Obama for President! She’s an amazing woman who truly cares about the world and helping the poor and marginalized. The structure of your poem is great and I love the detail you put into to contrast her from our new presidential elect, although, you didn’t explicitly mention him, Donald Trump. I found only a bit confusing in your second to last line when you say you “… and educated man..” for president; it’s confusing because Michelle is a woman and the genders don’t match up. Anyways beside that, I think your idea and poetic structure is phenomenal. I think the people here in the United States are failing to see that maybe the failure and stagnate progress of our society isn’t due to that people hold different economical and philosophical views but is due to the fact that men have the only ones running the U.S as presidents. And this calls for change. We need a woman as the next President of the United States.

    Heck yeah, Michelle Obama! I totally agree but after all her time in the White House she may be ready for a little breather. I like the poem. On the second to last line you say man though which kind of diverges from Michelle being president. Other than that sweet poem, I like the idea and execution!

    Great poem, Michelle would be a great president. Look at what she has done for this country without having power like her husband. Not only that but she is not worried about her image on the media like Clinton and especially Trump were doing. Though if in office I know her presidency would be exactly like her husbands, using him as a mentor. Obama to me though had a very successful presidency that he did not let a war overtake his agenda. Which it seems like to Trump his only agenda is to defeat ISIS, that is great but what about the gender gap? Economic debt? Foreign Affairs with other countries like North Korea?

    Cool poem! The entirety of this poem makes me wish that the work was slightly longer just to see any other witty jabs that could possibly come from you. 😀

    From your poem, I can tell what you wish for the future America. I, too, wish for the executive position to be filled with someone less commercially-based and corrupt. Michelle Obama, a Harvard law school graduate has definitely been one of the most active first ladies America has ever had. From Obama’s first term, you could already see that Michelle was promoting healthy eating and healthy kids.

    If Michelle ran, I would love to see her platform, but for now, I would like the Obamas to take a short rest. They seem a little ragged after two terms.

    Great poem! I would like to see what else you post in the future.
