Nobody expects the Queen to step foot in the homes of commoners, she will be “appearing” via conference call.
Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) — Michelle Obama is being billed as the featured attraction in house parties her husband’s re- election campaign is organizing around the country tomorrow to try to boost his support among women.
The first lady is to appear via conference call at the “Women for Obama” gatherings, President Barack Obama’s re- election campaign said in an e-mail sent to supporters last night.
Michelle Obama, serving as honorary chairwoman of Women for Obama, will “deliver a message just for us about the progress we’re making together and the work ahead in the months to come,” according to the e-mail, which said that “hearing from the First Lady is sure to get us fired up.”
The house parties are an example of the more visible role Michelle Obama is taking in her husband’s re-election campaign.
The house parties also follow the Obama administration’s rule to provide women who work for religion-affiliated hospitals and universities access to free contraception through their health insurance.
