    If it was purely symbolic, then why the amount of controversy surrounding Mrs. Obama?

    I believe that the USA would survive without a first lady, but it looks like after next year's election we might have a first dude.

    I have no idea why you're asking me this question. I also have no idea what controversy surrounds Mrs. Obama. She's completely inconsequential.

    Because the office hasn't been symbolic for quite some time. She wasn't inconsequential. She was essentially the pillar for reforming school lunches.

    Oh, well reforming school lunches isn't a priority of mine. In fact, I'm not even interested in the subject. I never needed the help of the wife of a politician in DC to feed my kids or make sure my kids eat right. I always thought that was my responsibility as their mother. She can worry about her own kids and the kids of those who can't take care of them without her.
