“I was over the Obama’s for an evening – Barrack put his head on my lap and I ran my fingers through his hair comforting him. It was more loving and sweet then sexual. Michelle was there too and she shared her dirty little secret: “I really don’t like dogs, I’d much rather have two horses now that I’m in the White House”. The house was a plain suburban home, and the feeling of the dream was friendly and neighborly.”
From a 52-year old female nurse in Washington state, on February 5, 2011.
She said the dream made her feel happy when she woke up: “I really enjoyed this dream–it made me laugh.”
A liberal Democrat, she said the dream matches her waking life attitude towards the President: “I’ve always liked Obama and I still do.”
The physical intimacy and friendliness here reminds me of some of the dreams women had of Bill Clinton, with situations that might seem sexual but are specifically described by the dreamers as non-sexual. Their emphasis is on the close interpersonal bond with the President, a feeling that’s continuous with the dreamer’s political views in waking life.
In this dream Michelle Obama displays no jealousy or disapproval of the dreamer’s behavior. On the contrary, the First Lady takes the dreamer into her confidence and shares a “dirty little secret.” It’s hard to say what this is about without the dreamer’s associations, but it sounds to me like a sly commentary on the private desires hidden behind Michelle Obama’s public persona.
