I haven’t really had the chance to connect to Obama’s better half. But Mrs. Obama talking on Larry King Live blew my mind, impressed me, and knocked it out the park.
When asked if McCain’s reference to Obama as “that one” was offensive, Michelle Obama simply said “no,” adding that this issue has nothing to do with what’s affecting average Americans hurting from the economic downturn.
“I think there are two conversations that have been going on throughout this whole election. There’s the conversation that’s been happening with the pundits … and then there’s the conversation that’s been happening on the ground,” she said.
She said that Americans “right now are scared” and “nervous about the economy.”
“They don’t care about the back and forth between the candidates … They want real answers about how we’re going to fix this economy and get the health care benefits on track so, you know, this is part of politics,” she added.
You’re all right, Mrs. O. You’re all right.
