Michelle Obama Covers 'AARP' Magazine September/October 2011

Michelle Obama is red hot in L’Wren Scott on the cover of AARP magazine’s September/October 2011 issue.

The 47-year-old First Lady and Jill Biden sat down with AARP to chat – here’s what the ladies had to share:

Jill, on the hours up to the capture of Osama bin Laden: “I didn’t have a clue. Joe left early and was gone all day. Didn’t come home for a meal—nothing. So I knew something was happening, but I thought it was about Libya. [When I heard,] I was grading papers and watching TV.”

Michelle, on not knowing what was going on: “I knew something was happening, but when it gets down to that level of secrecy, there’s just a small number of people who know anything. I was actually out to dinner with girlfriends, and I didn’t know until I walked in the door. It was later in the evening, and Barack had his suit on, because he was going to the press conference. And I said, ‘What’s going on?’”

Michelle, on a possible future in politics: “The answer is N-O. Period, dot. I think one reason Jill and I are comfortable and happy is that we’re doing what speaks to us. And what I’ve learned as a woman growing up, getting older, is you’ve got to know who you are. And a politician—it’s never been who I was or wanted to be.”
