Yesterday, “Girls” creator Lena Dunham put out a light-hearted Obama endorsement ad in which she likens voting to sex. The video, which has been available to the public for less than 24 hours, has already generated a lot of buzz and discussion, but conservative commentator Michelle Malkin is “bored” by the clip and says it only proves her point that liberal females need to “[g]et your heads out of your lady parts.”

Well, it’s over. Not the election, certainly, but the next two weeks will be like a piece of cake now that we’re finished with the lengthy, exhausting and frequently frustrating presidential and vice-presidential debates. Now that those are done, the process of reflection (and detoxing from all of those debate drinking games) can begin. Here are ten women-centric moments from the three presidential debates and the vice-presidential debate that made us laugh, cringe, cheer and scratch our heads.

You guys, we’re almost done. After this evening, we will be free from any obligation to sit in front of our televisions, yelling impotently at the screen every time each candidate gets a question and uses it as an opportunity to talk about something that is only tangentially related to the original question at hand — for the next few years, anyway. We’re about to get our lives back! But before we do, there’s one more debate to get through. Thank goodness our friends at Nerdwallet have our backs.

I’ve known for a while that Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Jay-Z, and Beyonce are BFFs just a step away from making friendship bracelets and hosting pajama slumber parties, so it was completely unnecessary for our nation’s leader to appear on the radio to share more about his love for the musical power couple.

The Internet went wild on Tuesday, when news broke of musical legend Madonna’s mid-concert remark that President Barack Obama is a “black Muslim.” Though the singer was sincerely endorsing our nation’s leader, I had a feeling she was being tongue-and-cheek about the religion comment, as much-maligned conspiracy theorists sometimes parade around the absurd idea that Obama is actually an Islamic radical.

By now we all know that Ann Romney “Loves you womennnnnn!” but women—at least those who don’t receive equal pay for equal work, use birth control, are gay or want safe, legal access to abortions—seem to kind of like President Barack Obama.

Being president is tough, so it makes sense that most of our nation’s leaders have done the job with dogs by their side. A new infographic shows that canines have been guiding and comforting U.S. presidents for more than 200 years, a true testament to the benefits of owning furry friends.

President Barack Obama indicated last fall that he wasn’t keen on daughters Malia and Sasha tuning in for the Kardashians, but mom Michelle is way cooler than that and “[doesn't] trip” over the young ladies staying updated on the lives of the Los Angeles family members.

President Barack Obama’s first ever kiss with wife Michelle sounds more like the first kiss between two teenagers at the beginning of their relationship. That makes the smooch story all the more adorable. What’s even better is that the story of the first couple’s very first peck has just been commemorated on a plaque outside a Chicago ice cream shop, where the spark-flying incident took place many years ago.

Daily Beast contributor Meghan McCain is in a rough place right now. On the one hand, the Republican Arizona girl wants Mitt Romney to become our next president, but on the other, she wants Barack Obama to take Hillary Clinton on as his VP candidate, and given the rise of the current secretary of state’s popularity, the GOP would really struggle to compete against her. Nevertheless, the “Dirty Sexy Politics” author argues that Clinton would be the right choice for Obama’s ticket — and that kicking Joe Biden to the curb would be a good move for liberals.
