Today we found out that Michelle Obama will dive into the tumultuous healthcare debate this Fall. Rejecting former First Lady Hillary Clinton's approach in the '90s, Michelle plans to rise above the partisan back and forth. Still, some people will probably question whether she should be involved at all.
The official White House line is that Michelle will hold town hall meetings that focus more on people than policy, and she will use her prominent position to advocate healthy habits like eating right and exercise. (I wonder if she'll divulge the secret of her envied arms?) Of course the first lady will have her husband's back while she's out meeting with Americans — she's expected to "amplify the president’s message on the need for health insurance reform."
While she won't be completely nonpartisan, Michelle could add a smart and refreshingly calm voice to the discussion. Are you excited to see what Michelle has to say about health care, or would you rather let elected officials work it out?
