Mrs. Obama Addresses 'Secret Weapon' Labeling
As First Lady Michelle Obama prepped for her Tuesday night speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, she took time out to chat with The Insider's Brooke Anderson, covering everything from being called the president's 'secret weapon' to her dwindling date nights with the POTUS.
"It's flattering for people to think that I play a significant role. I just try to do my part," the first lady said of her and Ann Romney's "secret weapon" monikers. "But, yes, women are going to be a pivotal part in this campaign, because there's so much at stake for women."
As there is a lot on the line this election year, Mrs. Obama has rehearsed her highly anticipated DNC speech, but she has yet to preview it for her husband.
"We tend not to practice in front of each other," said Mrs. Obama. "I like to hear his speeches fresh, because I try to put myself in the position of the voter."
With the president's hectic campaign schedule, it would be difficult for the first couple to practice in front of each other anyway. Even their romantic date nights have temporarily been put on hold.
"When this is all over then we'll be able to take a breather and go out to dinner and just sort of catch up and remember us," said the first lady.
