First Lady Of Democracy, Don't Let the Bastards Get You Down

A U.N. special envoy has finally been allowed to visit Aung Sang Suu Kyi. Even after years and years under house arrest, and in worsening health, she scores perfect tens on substance and style. Take lessons potential First Ladies. Think you'll be head Democracy chick if you make it to 1600? Think again. Myanmar's, I mean Burma's....o.k. o.k. Myanmar's (don't hurt her) long imprisoned freedom fighter wins hands down. Tireless non-violent activist for democratic change? Check. Nobel Peace laureate? Check. Establisher of signature style with fetching flowers in hair at nape of neck? Check.
Now that I think about it...can we get her in both the East and West Wings?
