The First Lady is in hot water today…for clapping! At last night’s debate Candy Crowley instructed the audience not to “applaud, speak or otherwise participate” and both campaigns agreed to this stipulation prior to the debate. But then Mrs. Obama was caught on camera clapping!
So why was the First Lady clapping anyway? She was just one of the audience members who applauded after Candy Crowley seemed to side with President Obama on Libya when Crowley tried to correct what Governor Romney had said.
So what impact will the First Lady’s sudden clapping have on the election? Zero! Here’s what I think – this was simply a wife spontaneously reacting to something her husband said. In other words – so what!
What do YOU think? Do you agree with me, or do you think this really is a big deal? Post your thoughts!
