While American first ladies typically use the position to advocate for a personally important issue, such activism is generally quite unobtrusive. Nancy Reagan’s message to kids about the dangers of drug use, for example, is memorable without being overtly pushy. Many see Michelle Obama’s role, however, as a deviation from that established trend. Her advocacy for healthy eating and exercise has, in many Americans’ eyes, transcended mere passion by entering the policy realm.
