From the Huffington Post:
Barbara Walters selected Michelle Obama as her most fascinating person of the year.
While the previous nine of Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People” had been revealed, the tenth and most fascinating person is kept secret until the show airs.
Their interview took place December 1 at the White House.
“First Lady Michelle Obama is shaping up to be much more than the sum of her parts,” Walters said.
The First Lady described the last year as “a whirlwind,” and said that her biggest goal as First Lady is to lead a conversation on the health of America’s children.
Mrs. Obama — who wore a sleeveless dress for the interview — demurred when Walters asked about her arms, but said that her exercise routine grew partly out of “revenge” against her husband.
