The 55-year-old has also seen her seen her popularity soar after the release of her best-selling memoir Becoming. She was recently named as the most admired woman in the world, according to a YouGov poll in July. Mrs Obamaâ€™s friend, Tracey Meares, a professor at Yale Law School, saidÂ Barack Obama’s wife Michelle Obama would make a great president but was uncertain whether she would actually ever run â€“ despite the growing clamour.
She told Marthaâ€™s Vineyard Times: â€śShould she run? I donâ€™t know.â€ť
But added: â€śI canâ€™t imagine that she wouldnâ€™t make a good president.
â€śBut itâ€™s a thing you have to want to do, right? Sheâ€™s amazing.â€ť
The remarks come after Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore called for Mrs Obama to stand because she is the only person who could â€ścrushâ€ť Donald Trump.

But Mrs Obama has poured cold water on the plans by ruling out standing for president.
She said she believed there were others ways for her to help the country.
The mother-of-two told The National magazine: â€śJust between us, and the readers of this magazine – thereâ€™s zero chance.
â€śThere are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives.

Michelle Obama described Trump as a â€śmisogynistâ€ťÂ
“But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. Itâ€™s just not for me.â€ť
A YouGov poll found Mrs Obama to be the most admired woman in the world above Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie and the Queen.
Mrs Obama used her memoir to launch an attack on Donald Trump, who she described as a â€śmisogynistâ€ť, as she opened up about how she felt during the US Presidentâ€™s 2017 inauguration.
The former First Lady revealed she â€śstopped even trying to smileâ€ť when she saw the Republican firebrand replace her husband.

Mrs Obama told how she wondered why so many women rejected â€śan exceptionally qualified female candidate and instead choose a misogynist as their presidentâ€ť.
In a strongly-worded attack on the US leader, Mrs Obama said the â€śvibrant diversityâ€ť of her husbandâ€™s previous inaugurations â€śwas goneâ€ť when Mr Trump took the helm.
She said: â€śSomeone from Barackâ€™s administration might have said that the optics were bad, that what the public saw didnâ€™t reflect the presidentâ€™s reality or ideals.
â€śBut in this case, maybe it did. Realising it, I made my own optic adjustment. I stopped even trying to smile.â€ť

During an interview with ABC News, Mrs Obama said she would â€śnever forgiveâ€ť Mr Trump for his role in fuelling the â€śbirtherâ€ť conspiracy theory about her husband.
She wrote in her book: â€śThe whole birther thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed.
â€śBut it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.â€ť
