Michelle Obama's "Swipe"?

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

At another stop, in Atlantic, Michelle said she travels with her husband in part "to model what it means to have family values," adding "if you can't run your own house, you can't run the White House." She didn't elaborate, but it could be interpreted as a swipe at the Clintons.

Michelle Obama was probably referring to the hard choices she and Sen. Obama have had to make about their work/family balance -- that's a recurring theme of her stump speech.

But Matt Drudge has other designs, and you can bet that the cable news networks will follow.
