It has been widely reported that Michelle Obama is going to be playing a much more active role on the campaign trail. But the White House is making clear that she will also work on behalf of the president’s policies.
Not since – or before – Hillary did Hillarycare and screwed it up have we seen much of this.
Tomorrow, Tuesday September 28, First Lady Michelle Obama will host a conference call with nurses from across the country to discuss the benefits of the Affordable Care Act for nurses and their patients. The First Lady will be joined on the call with one of the highest ranking nurses in the Obama Administration, Health Resources and Services Administration Director Mary Wakefield, PhD, RN.
Reporters, as far as I can tell, may listen in but not ask questions. But she will eventually be getting questions as she starts to assume a policy and political role. I hope she’s ready. And I hope reporters are “impolite” enough to ask her views on candidates and issues she’s getting behind.
