Sunday's LKL: Michelle Obama's First 100 Days

Posted: 06:00 PM ET

artmichelleobamawhitehouseTonight, we're talking about Michelle Obama!  Her husband marked 100 days in office this week.  She ALSO marks 100 days in her job as first lady.

She was a lightening rod for some during the 2008 campaign!  And, who can forget the controversial "fist bump" with her husband?   Now, some compare her to Jackie O! Others call her a style icon and a role model for women around the world.  Our panel discussion tonight on "Larry King Live," at 9 p.m., ET.

Michelle Obama is intelligence personified for a broad American audience. She is fashionable, intelligent, insistent and compassionate, all at once. Her face is constantly alive and attentive. America has been starving for this kind of image, and I hope she has the fortitude to endure center stage.


Angelique Cunningham   May 3rd, 2009 9:23 pm ET

As a single black female without children, I look at Michelle Obama and think, "I want to be someone's Michelle Obama!" She has a great presence and has done great things. Hope she keeps up the great work!


Jne Campbell   May 3rd, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Michelle Obama has inspired me to great heights. I admire this woman so much for her grace, intelligence, motherliness. She makes being black proud. The fact that she is educated and she stands by her husband through everything makes me want to become her eventually. As a fashion icon, she dresses simply and yet elegant. She is beautiful. I am a dark skinned woman also, and I do feel that within the African American community, dark skinned woman are not valued as being beautiful than light skinned woman. Michelle changed all that. Thanks Michelle. I cry everyday knowing that she and her husband have made such a drastic change to America and I think there is more to come, positively from them


Braquel   May 3rd, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Being a young black female in America, Mrs. Obama is setting a wonderful example me and other young girls. It is a lot better than looking at what the video girls and the girls in the magazines are wearing. Even though she is a mom and in the spotlight cinstantly she dresses comfortable and sexy at the same time


Marshata Caradine-Randall   May 3rd, 2009 9:25 pm ET

I am elated to share her heighth, gender, ethnicity. She is what I knew we were for years. There are a plethora of First Lady Michelle Obamas, they are women of: Impeccable Character, Courage, Strength, Dignity, Integrity, Christianity, love of Servitude. She is the image we LOVE viewing. ALL are in awe but I am NOT shocked; we are accomplished women who don't allow others to dictate what we can and can not do.

I AM ELATED I AM CONNECTED WITH HER EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY.....


FranSC   May 3rd, 2009 9:25 pm ET

I am a left-of-center liberal feminist democrat. But I am disgusted at the over-the-'moon' obsession with the Obamas in general. But, thank God, you had a voice of realism on your show tonight in Robin Givhan. Who would have guessed! I just knew she would be carrying on like all AA people and the left-wing liberals. It is disgusting!


Abbe Blue   May 3rd, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Michelle has been the epitome of class, composure and hope.
It is not about her wardrobe, but about her style and smile. I look forward to the future with this first family at the helm.


Monique   May 3rd, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Michelle Obama has single-handedly changed the way black women are viewed in America. I notice it the way people of other cultures even look at me as a dark skinned professional black woman.

No longer are we marginalized as the video hoochies or the emasculating big black mammy stereotypes that film and television has historically depicted in this country and around the world.

She is the BEST "publicist" for black women across the world.


Dr. Dorrett Johnson   May 3rd, 2009 9:27 pm ET

As a professional Black Woman I am very proud of the First Lady she is comfortable and confident in her person. She is a role model for many women past, present, and future generations of all races.


Janita   May 3rd, 2009 9:28 pm ET

How Michelle Obama has affected me!

I am 58 years of age and I have never felt so much love for a first lady in my life...she is one lady that any woman or man for that matter could and should admire...and that said...it does not mean that she is replacing Jesus Christ or anything...but she is a ROLE MODEL! and a very confident beautiful polished one at that.


Camille McKenzie   May 3rd, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Hi I am Camille McKenzie and I have been enjoying this edition of the show i try to watch it when i can. I am from Jamaica (caribbean)... really enjoying the discussion and i love michelle Obama...she is a fashionista! She embodies not just what a black woman is or should be but what a woman is, whether black, white, pink, grey, blue..lol. She is supportive, strong and a leader. She has good morals and she embodies what alot of persons try to emulate..All of Jamaica loves the Obamas! Great show i love it Mr King!


Stephanie   May 3rd, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I feel the First Lady has become a wonderful first lady. She is my role model and I admire the way she carries herself, I love her style, her service and her authenticy... She is soo REAL there's nothing phoney about her. She makes me proud to be a black woman and she reminds me a lot of my own mother.


Ja Nette M. Thomas   May 3rd, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Watching your program on Michelle Obama has truly been an inspiratrion. I feel that she can give young ladies, and women a reason to take time and put themselves first on the list. She gets up early to work out, I believe so that it doesn't take time from her children or other responsibilities, her positive attitude and intelligence is something refreshing. Most important the way in which she instills positiveness in her children or a specch she maybe giving. God Bless her. We need more postive role models for our children than what the media has been portraying. I believe her children see Michelle as their role model.


jataria   May 3rd, 2009 9:31 pm ET

I think Mrs.Michelle Obama has done a wonderful job as the first lady and as her first 100 days in office with her husband Mr.Barack Obama both of them have done a wonderful job and they way Mrs.Michelle Obama dresses is so amazing i just love it and she is very beautifull
I just love her and I would like to me her and Mr.Barack Obama


Deborah Davis   May 3rd, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I am incredibly proud of Michelle Obama. I am absolutely intrigued by all of the characteristics that make her, Michelle: Her beauty, her class, poise, intellect. Her warmth. Her smile. Her good deeds, her strong and inspiring character. Her ability to be a strong partner, wife, mother, daughter, friend, ambassador.

She is truly a role model for excellence and balances her many hats superbly and with poise.

Her incredible achievements and her down to earth 'way of being' Michelle – is truly an inspiration for all women. Plus she is healthy and fit!

I want to work harder and accomplish more in my own life as a women because of what Michelle has shown us . She helps us believe " we can fly".


Sonia   May 3rd, 2009 9:33 pm ET

The most powerful thing I have received from Michelle Obama is the gift of self -image. Being a minority is no longer an obstacle. I can step into a room and I know my personality and accomplishments are just as important as anyone else's. For the first time in my life I feel like I matter just as much as anyone else.


Betty McANly   May 3rd, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Enjoying your show. One comment concerning Mrs. Obama's fashion! We love It, but the best thing the whole family wears is a smile, my daughter made this comment. The smile is a real fashion statement!!

Love your show
Love the First Family


amy   May 3rd, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Michelle Obama is an incredible woman. She has a softness and gracefulness about her that i love. At the same time, she also is able to show the people that she is her own person and she never looks uncomfortable. There are only wonderful things to say about her really...and i think she is doing just fine. She is lovely, poised, well educated and i believe every woman would want her as a best friend. Everyone is so concerned with her fashion- yes, she is beautiful and she loves fashion... but there is much more to her than that!


Tara   May 3rd, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I absolutely adore the 1st lady. I think she is the epitome of beauty, intellect and class. Michelle has inspired me to be the best woman I can be, but she also instilled confidence in me as a Black woman. She represents TRUTH, there are many of us (Black women) in America who positively contributes to this society everyday as professionals, awesome mothers, great wives, caring neighbors and good citizens. It's so refreshing to see her as 1st lady... I love her!


Shernet Gray   May 3rd, 2009 9:36 pm ET

as the wife of the president Michele gives me courage> I see her mothering two girls almost independently while the President Obama took on his campaign trail and political responsibilities. Michele has reminded me how important as a womai ti means to be strong, independent and self-reliant. I am a divorced mother of two


pat pile   May 3rd, 2009 9:39 pm ET

what do you mean a first ? We have had one of the best madaam secretaries under the bush administration, who happened to be african-american, but I guess that fact escapes you and the liberal media.
Condi Rice, is one of the brightest, attractive, and feminine women who have worked in the white house. Its a shame the way she has been treated . "SHE" is the woman kids she be looking up too.
I would have voted for her for President before any of the jokers, that ran in 2008.
Including the joker that won.


don   May 3rd, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I think that too many people are projecting their hopes and wants onto the obama family and so you you wind up with talk show pundits (as well as regular people) flinging superlatives willy-nilly as if they've lived with and known the family personally for years as well as an obsession with the newest "celebrity" created by people desperate for a new icon to garner themselves more attention and notariety ... what influence have this president and his wife had on me? Amusement ... at the media ... !!!


Courteney   May 3rd, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Question: Do you think Michelle Obama places unrealistically high expectations on other black women? Everyone cannot be first lady. We can be our own personal best. Her story is not my story nor is it the story of my circle – even though we are educated and professional.


Andrea Sunsarey   May 3rd, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Michelle Obama truly inspires me to reach higher! As an African American educated woman of very modest beginnings...I can truly relate to her and she encourages me to work even harder as a mother and as a professional. She is an amazing woman who possesses beauty, grace, and poise! I am proud to call her my First Lady!


leagh, vancouver, canada   May 3rd, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Michelle Obama's strength during the campaign when people tried to paint her as UnAmerican, her life story of struggle and ultimate success, her ability to be gracious in all situations , her obvious love for life and for those around her and her example of what family values look like are an inspiration to especially young women all around the world.

She has no airs; she is who she is and that is one remarkable woman. Americans should be very proud of their First Lady!


Deborah Parson   May 3rd, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Enjoyed the segment of your show about Michell Obama, get inspired every time I see her, her confidence and style is great. Adore our First Family!!!!


Andrea Sunsarey   May 3rd, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Courtney...I don't think Michelle places unrealistic, high expectations for us as Black women...do remember that they had to live with her parents on the South Side after finishing college. They did not come from wealth and have had to work very hard...as so many others in this nation have to do and continue to do.

So while Michelle has been Blessed to get to where she is...what each and every other Black woman and girl can do is do their absolute Best to reach their God-given potential...not Michelle's God-given potential. But, Michelle is a great example for us regardless of where we are. If you are working at the mall...be faithful and work your hardest at that! As the Word says...when you are faithful in small things, He will make you ruler over much. And that is what this is all about...let the Obama family inspire you to achieve all that God is calling you to do whether you come from a single parent household, like Barack or whether you are being raised by working class parents, like Michelle.


Pelaji Kyauka, PhD   May 3rd, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Things that impress me about the Obamas:
1. Comfortable in their skin as black people. No attempts to change.
2. the relationship with their kids. It is says a lot about their character.
3. their relationship-Michelle and Barack as expressed in public.
4. ability to avoid race politics, and embrace only the American identity.
5. Comfort in their name "Obama" and no attempt to change it.
6. Emphasis on education.


Deanie   May 3rd, 2009 9:56 pm ET

I am truly enjoying this program. I have always had tremendous admiration for all of our first ladies however Michelle Obama has a special place in my heart. She has to be under tremendous scrutiny yet seems to handle it with grace and making her own imprint on the role. She truly reflects what we as "middle-aged", "modern", "accomplished" "professional", "sexy" "health-conscious" women, mothers, wives, daughters, advocates, citizens and role models strive to be. ..where we integrate all of those roles without feeling conflicted. She conveys a beautiful spirit and without posturing or rancor. She seems to possess confidence, thoughtfulness and a strong sense of priorities. Good for her and good for our country.


Kahau Morrison   May 3rd, 2009 9:58 pm ET

I am grateful to see such a compassionate, hard working and real
First Lady like Michelle Obama in my lifetime. Whether with President Obama, her children, the family dog or regular folks throughout our country, she makes us feel what it is like to share parts of ourselves with others. I see her love for humanity through the great service she is doing for our country. She provides the Aloha spirit wherever she travels.


tamara   May 3rd, 2009 11:23 pm ET

the love between the 4 Obamas is remarkable & the love & respect betw. Michelle's Mom & the Pres. is wonderful also ! May they enjoy the yrs in White House ..

The family is awesome , lots of love & respect for each other...


Janette   May 3rd, 2009 11:42 pm ET

@ pat pile
Whew are you bitter! Perhaps jealous??????????????


Joan   May 3rd, 2009 11:52 pm ET

President Obama is painting a great big target sign on the United States of America. He's going to let the bad guys of gitmo go free, possible to wonder around the USA, and lets not forget about what Michelle Obama said. She thinks this is a mean country, she was only proud of this country when Barack became nominated for President. These are her true colors. These people hate this country, and we are going to worry about how Michelle is doing as first lady? Lets worry about the citizens of this great country who are loosing their jobs daily thanks to the mob takeover of the car companys. Barack won because he promised fiscal conservatism, but what we get is something totally opposite. Larry, talk about the health care they want to invoke on us, the rationed medicine for seniors (that should scare even YOU). Talk about how Stuart Smally and his acorn cronnies are stealing the election in Minnesota, who cares about Michelle and what she's wearing. We know what she really thinks of America, and notice how they don't let her talk all that much anymore, very smart on their part. Larry, you should be talking about the shirea law that will probably end up here too, that would mean, woman have basically NO rights, and you all thought George Bush was so horrible. At least the constitution, and campaign promises meant something to him, but most of all, at least he LOVED this country!!!


Latrice   May 4th, 2009 12:10 am ET

I absolutely love my First Lady. She makes me want to be more and do more. I have always been someone who admires strong, faithful, and candid men and women and she fits right in with those I consider my mentors be they near or far. I think she is doing great things and will do great things in the future. Her style of dress, social activities, and her motherly duties havent made me forget about the fact that she is a woman unto herself. She has her own skills and qualifications. She is intelligent and she is an excellent representative for us as Americans.


Fayla Sayles   May 4th, 2009 12:11 am ET

Michelle Obama is a likable person. The way she dress makes people like her. The way she dress say's. just because she's first lady, doesn't make her different from anyone alse.


John Henrick   May 4th, 2009 12:15 am ET

Michelle Obama is destined to be come the next Patricia "Tricia" Nixon Cox!


Peter   May 4th, 2009 12:22 am ET

Michelle Obama, with her zeal to bring the White House to the American people by, for example, inviting many civilians for dinners and planting a garden on the White House lawn with help from local children, is an example to us all on what leadership is about. She should be applauded, as should her husband, for their superior performance in their first 100+ days as the First Couple.


Natalie   May 4th, 2009 12:22 am ET

I feel encouraged and proud as a young Black female to see a woman of integrity and class, Michelle Obama, represented in the media


Jazz Trumpeter Eddie Gale   May 4th, 2009 12:22 am ET

In my opinion, Michelle Obama, our First Lady, has class that she has not even used yet.


Larry C   May 4th, 2009 12:23 am ET

Michelle Obama is simply amazing but I'm just as impressed with your female guests tonite and their very level and intelligent comments about Michelle.


JudgeU   May 4th, 2009 12:24 am ET

First Lady, Michelle Obama is just wonderful.


Jennifer B   May 4th, 2009 12:25 am ET

It's great that Michelle Obama is comfortable with her fashion choices. Super.
However, when I turn on CNN, I am seeking more substantial reporting.


George Cohen   May 4th, 2009 12:25 am ET

mr. Cloony said it best, Pres. OBama is the right man at the right time and Michelle Obama is the right first lady. we are witnesses to a great period in American history.


pat fasick   May 4th, 2009 12:28 am ET

Michelle is a long-awaited icon. Someone, a woman that many of us can look up to and model ourselves after in many respects – a patriotic, passionate american, a loving & practical mother, a devoted and equal partner, a smart & respected professional and the most fun, a snappy fashionite.


Fayla Sayles   May 4th, 2009 12:29 am ET

Michelle Obama, is a likable person. The way she dresses makes people like her. The way she dresses say's: just because she's first lady doesn't make her different from anyone else.


Roberta Plant   May 4th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Every time I see her, it makes me smile and feel so proud that she is setting such a wonderful example for all ages and races. She is so intelligent, and warm with the gift of making us all feel we know her and that she cares for all of us.


Annelie Douglass   May 4th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Michelle Obama what a woman! Besiders all of the obvious,
fashinable, beautiful, great mother, wonderful wife, family
woman, caring for the sick and poor, comfortable in her own
skin and clothing. She is just a "now" woman, a woman
that all of us woman older or young (62 white) admire, love
and respect. She and Barack are what we needed in this
country so much, not just "camelot" but two leaders who truly
have the intelect and forward-thinking to lead this country.They are not stuck in the past and old inefective ways of thinking.
Oh, I am so proud of both of them, Michelle and Barack are
an inspiration. Its so good to once again have respect for
our leadership.


Tanya Graham-Harvey   May 4th, 2009 12:39 am ET

I live in Jamaica and I have been following this lady since her husband decided to run for President. she is just awesome, she is wonderful, loveable, smart, intelligent, modest. she is just the best Larry. She inspires me. I love the show.

Sandra   May 4th, 2009 12:39 am ET

Michelle Obama is perfect for the times. She is truly an overall inspiration!


Thelma   May 4th, 2009 12:40 am ET

Why can't this beautiful, educated, intelligent, forthright mother be left alone about what "she" decides to wear. She is the First Lady of this United States and represents us all very well. All, media and individuals alike need to shut up and let her be our First Lady. Most need to follow her example and stop looking (hoping) for her to fail. We Americans have a beautiful and loving first family in the White House. Let's continue to pray for their safety and wisdom to meet this challenge.


janeth melancon   May 4th, 2009 12:43 am ET

Michelle Obama has opened my eyes in many ways. She has definitely become my mentor and even an imaginary friend. I feel as though I've developed a relationship with someone I've never met, but would feel very comfortable with if given the opportunity. The fact that she is an example for all women, makes me want to become more productive, broaden my horizons and give back to my community.


Nancy   May 4th, 2009 12:45 am ET

Shes a lady of class and seens to be a wonderful mother and first lady I hope the day comes that shes great and her skin color is not a factor. She can relate to all women and we love that and she is private but also wants to be there if needed that the true frist lady my hat off to her.


leigha henriquez   May 4th, 2009 12:48 am ET

First & foremost, IT IS ABOUT TIME the wake up call so desperately needed in D.C. comes from the White House. Michelle Obama has the confidence, knowledge and now, capacity, to reach the millions of U.S. voters who cannot & DO NOT relate to the 'old school, navy suit & tie, traditionalists' that are no longer in touch with the people they supposedly represent. Secondly, Jackie 'O was sensational, stylish and a definite impact for women in the U.S. AT THAT TIME. What normal working woman could stock closets with $6k suits for daily wear?? (Not much in touch with what a woman could accomplish unfortunately.) Today, many women are sensibly aware of the world changing and can relate better to a leading woman that is more practical and one that looks to grow with the husband, the children and the responsibilities that most common Americans are looking to find progress in. It is a bonus that Mrs. Obama can take experiences from a minority perspective – so often dismissed or overlooked in politics- and demonstrate a positive influence for a diversified population. Thank goodness – progress is possible!!


Angelina Narciso   May 4th, 2009 12:49 am ET

I like Michelle Obama, as simple as she is and the way she
dress up she looks more elegant and dignified not plastic, specially
her pictures with the kids in school looks very natural and down to
earth as we say. She seems to be approachable, loving and kind.
Every person in this earth who knows how to takes care of her mom
for me is a great person and that is Michelle and the President as
well.


Elizabeth Ball Townsend   May 4th, 2009 12:51 am ET

The iconic depiction of Michelle Obama is a positive thing for our country. Her sense of fashion as well as the work she is doing as First Lady are inspiring.

In reference to her fashion statements, I believe she should play a role in promoting fashion products from stores such as Target and Walmart and Kohl's, the stores where our average American people shop. She has an opportunity to honor frugality and humility and lessen the emphasis on materialism.


Larry C   May 4th, 2009 1:03 am ET

I just have to say it's refreshing not to have to listen to the wild eyed haters of the political right tonite.


Larry C   May 4th, 2009 1:04 am ET

You're wrong, I did not say that previously.


Angelina Narciso   May 4th, 2009 1:09 am ET

Michelle Obama what I can say just be natural to yourself every-
thing will go on smoothly with your life, God bless you when you do
things within your heart, the sincerity and honesty of doing it.


Angelina Narciso   May 4th, 2009 1:09 am ET

Michelle Obama what I can say just be natural to yourself every-

Jessica   May 4th, 2009 1:11 am ET

As a republican military spouse I appreciate Michelle Obama for recognizing the hardship of my situation. My husband is currently on his second tour to Iraq.


Libby   May 4th, 2009 1:23 am ET

Michelle and Barack Obama both represent the part of America that has been so under-represented in the media: A beautiful brown-skin non-white female with grace, poise, sensitivity and brilliance!! Also a strong, intelligent, devoted, brilliant African-American husband and father. Thank you Michelle for being your wonderful, smart, sensuous self!! Thank you Barack for having the good sense to appreciate what a jewel she is!! That makes you a jewel–as well!!


Belynda Decker   May 4th, 2009 3:22 am ET

I believe our first ldy is class act. An excellent role model for women. A superb mother wife and a genuine heart. We could stand to learn from her greatly.
No she is no Jackie O, no one can fill her shoes. But Mrs Obma will pave the way in her own way.


Jonathan Taylor   May 4th, 2009 3:23 am ET

I am a 56-year-old white man and am thrilled that we have finally broken the color barrier at the white house. I think both Barak and Michelle Obama are class acts, and if we allow them to survive, they will undo much of the damage done to America's global image by the moron who preceeded Mr. Obama in the White House. What scares me is that the media and the political machine of America is constantly comparing the president to Lincoln, JFK, RFK, Gandhi, MLK, and Jesus. All but the last were assassinated. Now we compare Michelle Obama to Jackie K-O, widow of an assassinated president. Can we compare these two wonderful people to someone who wasn't killed in office? I feel like the people pulling the strings in politics and the people pulling the strings in the national media are "prepping" the American public for another presidential assassination. How could it happen any other way? President Obama is so much like JFK, RFK, MLK, ... and on and on. God, how I hope I'm wrong.
Jonathan in Oregon


Diane   May 4th, 2009 3:27 am ET

Michelle is a beautiful woman both inside and out. She has been an inspiration to me to stop doubting myself with everything I have to do being a wife,mother,and a traveling working spouse and mom.


John Redelfs   May 4th, 2009 3:37 am ET

I think Michelle is the best thing that's happened to America since Elanor Roosveldt. She IS our Princess. What are the HATERS going to say about black people now. Guess they'll have to find another color to hate.

Carolyn St.Romain   May 4th, 2009 5:22 am ET

I am amazed and so impressed with our First Lady.....I truely believe she will become the woman the world loves, as we did Princess Diana


Chika Charles   May 4th, 2009 5:27 am ET

Any man looking at Michelle would wish for a like of her in a wife. I truly admire her. She looks calm, sincere and seem full of love for her family and country


Mutheu Mutua   May 4th, 2009 5:30 am ET

Michelle is a true superwoman of our time – able to manage her family, career and maintain America's interests at heart. And she's approachable!

Great watching you from Nairobi, Kenya.


Martha   May 4th, 2009 5:30 am ET

Michelle Obama gives hope to those of us living in Africa, ans especially the black woman trying to fit in a world that has often made beauty to be white or light skin.


A   May 4th, 2009 5:34 am ET

She is a very strong woman that knows what she is doing.


Leonel & Fr. Nkea   May 4th, 2009 5:40 am ET

She is a model to all 1st ladies as she is able to manage her public and private life.Wow, what an example to follow.

she's a sweetheart,,we could invite her over for coffee, I could give her a mug, she would be happy !..


Rose   May 4th, 2009 5:29 pm ET

No wonder Barack Obama fell for her when he met her. She possesses all the qualities that would attract the brilliant Barack. Intelligence, accomplishments, class, overcoming poverty to reach great heights, educated, vision, and a strong sense of contributing toward America. Her attractiveness lies in her strengths.

We need more women like Michelle. I hope her example will encourage other women to develop themselves to their best abilities, rather than place their value in silicon implants and surgically altered faces and bodies.

Admit it - this show was produced by the same room full of 11 year old girls who run the Jonas Brothers fansite, right?

It was very clever of them to take out the "Jonas Brothers" reference in every insipid statement and replace it with "Michelle".

I think there is a Peabody Award with little Brittany and Sophia's names on it if they keep up this high quality work!

Larry King Live has never been better!

Let me also add that it's great to see such a diversity of viewpoints on this blog!

It's not one of those sites where everyone either suffers from groupthink or falls to heavyhanded censorship of opposing views by fascistic screeners. Brava!
