As the Obama family prepares for their first weekend in the White House, they’re already embroiled in a controversy, of sorts. Michelle Obama expressed dismay and distress this week about a toy manufacturer creating dolls named after her daughters, Sasha and Malia. Does the First Lady have a point?  Is this unfair exploitation of the young girls, aged 7 and 10? Or, have the Obama’s put their daughters in the public domain and therefore willingly made them subject to the trials and tribulations of celebrity? Tell us what you think.
