There's something about First Lady Michelle Obama

Not much impresses me. But every time I see First Lady Michelle Obama on TV, I stop and my heart swells with pride.
See, Mrs. Obama is everything that I hope my niece will be when she grows up --classically classy, beautiful, smart and successful. Shoot, I want to be Michelle Obama when I grow up.
Just listening to Mrs. Obama speak reminds me that  it's OK to support your man's dreams. But has Mrs. Obama lost herself? Nope. She stands with her man -- The President -- and on her own.
Today, Mrs. Obama fired up a crowd in Greensboro, NC.

According to The Charlotte Observer:

Obama peppered her speech with personal references to illustrate broader political points, including how she and Barack Obama were so in love after they first met – and, she assured the crowd, “We still are.” She talked about the debt they both amassed during college.
“We’re doing this because we believe that everyone should have a fair shot,” she told an estimated 2,400 people at UNC Greensboro. “And that means that all of our kids should have a good school, right?”
“Right!” the crowd yelled back.
“It means that all of our kids should be able to go to college without a mountain of debt. We believe everyone in this country should do their fair share, and that means that teachers and firefighters should not pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires. … We believe that if you work hard, you shouldn’t go bankrupt because you get sick …
“These,” she concluded, “are basic American values.”
And this is another reason why Mrs.Obama is amazing. When she speaks, it feels real. It feels as if she's talking to you.
They call fans of comic books and super heroes Fanboys. When it comes to Mrs. Obama, I'm a fan girl.
