Behind every great man there is a greater woman

This came to me in an E-mail and found interesting.

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious.

When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president's secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner.

Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, why was he so interested in talking to you?

She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her.

President Obama then said, "so if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant" , to which Michelle responded, "no, if I had married him, he would now be President"


  1. haha This is a great story and so true! I was thinking the way the President had. Great story.

  2. True in different ways to different people. Socrates Leo Tolstoy and Dostoevsky and many other great people had very bad marriages which made them great too !!
