COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - First lady Michelle Obama says rallying
voters to the polls is about more than just politics, but about whether the country can move forward at a time of frustration and cynicism.
She made the remarks Sunday evening at a Democratic rally at
The Ohio State University. She appeared alongside her husband,
President Barack Obama, for their first joint campaign appearance since his 2008 presidential run.
Mrs. Obama said her first priority as "mom-in-chief" has been making sure their two daughters are adjusting to the White House.
She said like every parent she knows, her children are the center
of her world and she's concerned about their future.
She said the president and his Democratic allies in Congress
have already achieved some important victories, citing the health
care overhaul and improved access to student aid and veterans care.
She said those are not merely political victories, but "positive
change that touches people's lives."
