Michelle Obama Speaks Out

Tonight Michelle Obama speaks out about her role in her husbands race. Michelle, a Harvard educated lawyer didn't want her husband, Barack, to run at first.

She says she's struggling to be a supportive wife, a good mother, and a role model. To find balance she's cut back on her workload and while opponent, Hillary Clinton is leading in the polls, especially with women, Obama says she's ready to go the distance to get those votes.

"You know, we are working hard to ensure to the women of America that Barack Obama is who we need. You know, some women just feel like it's a woman's turn. That they just feel like, you know, it's Hillary's turn. That, I reject because democracy isn't supposed to be about whose turn it is.

Obama hopes Oprah Winfrey will step up to the plate and start campaigning for her husband.
