My opinion of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy just went up. A lot.
It's possible, and even likely, that our own first lady shares similar sentiments on the matter, but cannot voice them, since her husband is attempting to re-engage the Mullahs "without preconditions."
In either 2012 or 2016, time for the Obamas in the White House will be growing short, and we may see Michelle unbound. Then, she can call out a whole bunch of nasty people around the world.
Meanwhile, from Gallup, 27 Aug 2010: "Muslim Americans continue to give President Barack Obama the highest job approval rating of any major religious group in the U.S. ..."
Anon (noon) - I think part of it is "hoping," and part of it is my sense that she is a tough-minded woman with strong opinions and views (whether or not one agrees with specific views she espouses), and also a first-hand knowledge of women who attended Princeton during the 1980s, and their willingness to speak out. I am pretty sure that Mrs. Obama's attitudes would parallel Ms. Bruni-Sarkozy's in this matter, as would be the case for the vast majority of American women.
Kudos to Ms. Bruno-Sarkozy (and her husband) for having the flexibility to state her views.
And Iran thinks her pimp is the U.N. Which is expecting too much from the U.N.
