CafeMom Covers Michelle Obama's Campaign Appearance (VIDEO)

by Lindsay Ferrier on October 12, 2012 at 4:13 PM

Michelle ObamaMichelle Obama made a campaign stop in Virginia this past week, and CafeMom was there! Our own Tracy Odell got to sit down with Mrs. O for a roundtable discussion, and we also covered the First Lady's stump speech before a rapt audience of supporters.

Click through to see our video report.

It's amazing how much Michelle Obama has grown as a public speaker over the last four years. No matter your politics, it's hard not to be drawn in by her charisma and charm.

And while she was obviously in Virginia to support her husband's reelection campaign, during her roundtable discussion the FLOTUS managed to address ideals that appeal to nearly all moms, whether they're Democrat, Republican, or independent:

"We are really all working for the same thing," she said. "Fundamentally, we are struggling with some of the same issues.  Some of us have more resources than others, but the pain, the challenges, the fears of motherhood, the frustrations of being a woman, the hopes and dreams that you have for your daughters and all our daughters -- I just don't think we're that far apart when we get a chance to actually sit down and talk to each other."

    Like Joanna, my question is why so one-sided.  Ann Romney is a wonderful woman and not all CMers like michelle.

    I find this rather discriminatory because of the liberal stories only.

    Others here support Romney.
