Point of another Mama Obama column

Ruth Marcus writes all kinds of stuff about Michelle Obama, but it all comes down to this:

She is, after all -- by résumé, anyway -- more Hillary than Jackie. But the painful paradox of campaign 2008 is that it came tantalizingly close to giving us an Ivy League-educated female lawyer in the Oval Office but yielded an Ivy League-educated female lawyer sketching out a supremely traditional first lady role.
Its meaning: This is Thanksgiving week and Marcus could write her column in an hour without the need for so much as a single phone call.
