The First Lady to the rescue! All eyes were on a radiant Michelle Obama as she stepped out on the campaign trail for the first time in two years. Wearing an eye-catching hot pink sheath dress. The First Lady received a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd.
The First Lady is starting a seven-state, two-week campaigning blitz zeroing in on tight races around the country. Her first stop, a fundraising luncheon in Milwaukee to benefit the campaign of Senator Russ Feingold.
The First Lady said at the pulpit, "I don't do this very often. In fact, I haven't really been on the trail since a little campaign you might remember a couple of years ago. This cute, tall, skinny guy."
Headlines across the country are calling the First Lady her husband's "Secret Weapon."
Kendra Mann from Politico.com said, "She really reminds people of the good old days of 2008. What this campaign promised and the hope that they brought."
Twenty days from the midterm elections, Michelle Obama has her work cut out for her. Polls find that 85% of Americans are frustrated with the economy. The First Lady's goal? To rally young voters who still support President Obama.
By the way, her dress is from the affordable chaing Talbots and costs less than $200.
