Liza Mundy, “When Michelle Met Barack,” Washington Post, October 5, 2008. 66 A Politician’s Wife 57 Malia’s birth came at an ideal time for Barack because the Illinois legislature was not in session. But a few weeks later, when Barack had to return to Springfield, Michelle was left to raise Malia by herself for days at a time while also working full time. In the next few years when Barack’s political career and desire to be elected to higher office kept him away from home even more, Michelle began to question whether his political ambition was fair to his family.

Michelle herself admits that was true. ”50 Michelle was still unsure about Barack when he took her to a meeting of community activists in Altgeld Gardens, a poor black area. After graduating from Columbia University in 1983 with a degree in political science, Barack had worked for three years as the director of Developing Communities Project (DCP), a churchbased community organization in Chicago. He helped the poor by starting a job training program, a college preparatory tutoring program, and a tenants’ rights organization in Altgeld.
