How did Michelle Obama get on Maureen Dowd's good side?

Read Dowd's column, "Should Michelle Cover Up?" here. Yes, we're talking about covering up her biceps, among a wide range of weightier topics that Dowd hits on in the column.

Here's an excerpt:
I love the designer-to-J. Crew glamour. Combined with her workaday visits to soup kitchens, inner-city schools and meetings with military families, Michelle’s flair is our depression’s answer to Ginger Rogers gliding around in feathers and lamé.

Her arms, and her complete confidence in her skin, are a reminder that Americans can do anything if they put their minds to it.
I'm purposefully omitting the next sentence, in which Dowd (of course) slams HRC.
