First Lady Michelle Obama was on the campaign trail Thursday in New Hampshire. She told the crowd of 1,500 at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester that one vote could be the difference in this election. Mrs Obama, who was introduced by Meredith Bohn a breast cancer survivor, also told supporters the future of health care rests in this election.
"Remember how folks were telling Barack not to take on health care, right? Remember that? Because I do. They said, leave it for another President, another day. Just keep kicking that can down the road." she said. "But fortunately Barack had the backs of American families, and as a result, today, millions of people in this country can finally see a doctor when they’re sick; they can get the care that they need to stay well."
She went onto talk about her husband's accomplishments in his first term including passage of health care reform, tax cuts for middle class families and small businesses, the doubling of Pell grants to help reduce student debt, financial assistance for the auto industry and the killing of Osama bin Laden.
She also mentioned in several parts of her speech about her parents as well as the President's childhood and her new initiative, It Takes One to encourage supporters to get friends, relatives and neighbors involved in the election.
She also held a rally earlier in the day in Laconia, New Hampshire.
