Michelle Obama: She and Barack Understand Voters' Challenges

Michelle Obama says she and her husband have a better understanding of the everyday challenges facing Americans than do policy makers in Washington.

The wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama campaigned Tuesday at a town hall meeting north of Charlotte. She said the Illinois senator and his family are "not so far away from life that we don't understand and get it."

Obama said when she and her husband left law school, the monthly payments on their school loan debt was more than their monthly mortgage payment. She said they only got out of that debt when Barack Obama wrote two best selling books.

North Carolina voters will name their preference in a presidential candidate in the state's May 6 primary. Obama was headed later Tuesday to woo voters in Winston-Salem and Raleigh.

    I feel education is very very important today no one can really succeed without one, not a good paying job anyway, I am happy to know that the Obamas are concerned about the world our children are growing up in, the schools with old books the toxic the small over crowed class rooms that are hard to concentrate in ,I think the Obama will bring us a better future!!!!
