“Diversity in this country is a good thing,” Michelle Obama said. “Whether it’s gender or race or socioeconomic background or religion, that’s the world I come from.”
As for the criticism towards the president’s health care reform, she said she tries not to focus on the negative. Her main goal as first lady is to take her passions to the next level, the same way other First Lady’s have put a unique stamp on their passions – with the fight against childhood obesity as her primary call to action.
