Michelle Obama hits campaign trail

WASHINGTON – Michelle Obama, the first lady, will make her 2010 campaign debut in Milwaukee on Wednesday with a pitch for Americans to vote for Democrats as the party of families and children.

“You see, more than anything else, I come at this as a mom,” Mrs. Obama will say, according to excerpts of her campaign speech released by the White House. “When I think about the issues facing our nation, I think about what it means for my girls, and I think about what it means for the world we’re leaving for them and for all our children. As I travel around this country, and look into the eyes of every single child I meet, I see what’s at stake.”
