U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama is celebrating her 50th birthday on January 17. Michelle has always been by Barack’s side throughout his political career. The First Lady’s popularity ratings in the U.S. are even higher than those of her husband. According to last year’s McClatchy survey, 63% of the respondents thought highly of Michelle while 26% held a negative view of her. One of the closest friends of the Obama family, Senior Advisor to the President of the United States, Valerie Jarrett said Barack and Michelle “serve as an example” to all Americans. A big birthday celebration will be held at the White House on Saturday. The guests are advised to put on comfortable clothes and rehearse some dance moves.
