I like the way Michelle handled herself. Notice how she quickly takes control of the conversation and never relinquishes it? I love the way she dismisses Whoopi and Behar by calling Shepherd and Hasslebeck the friendly side, LOL! Michelle earns extra points for calling out Behar for not reading the book and thus diminishing any snark Behar might have had.
Michelle did have an extra hand in the fact that much of the Hope and Change crowd is neutered by the endless broken promises of Dear Reader.
BTW, did you also notice how the audience cheered that they were getting a copy of Malkin's new book?
