channeling MIMOSA

We find it interesting that both last night and this morning Mrs. O has chosen yellow, a color which until now we haven’t frequently seen in Mrs. O’s wardrobe (save for her appearance in head to toe J.Crew on The Tonight Show). In December 2008 Pantone named Mimosa the color of 2009, a color that “embodies hopefulness and reassurance in a climate of change”. Is Mrs. O’s favor for the color, perhaps, her way of projecting optimism?
