Poised and prepared, with a clear agenda to remind voters of just why they voted in 2008 for her husband, President Barack Obama, she laid it all on the line and her intensity reverberated through the crowd long after she exited stage left.

“When it comes to the health of our families, Barack refused to listen to all those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day, another president,” said the first lady. “He didn’t care whether it was the easy thing to do politically – that’s not how he was raised – he cared that it was the right thing to do.”
