(Huffington Post) Michelle Obama Open Letter In Elle Adds To Ann Romney's And Her 'Magazine Campaigns'

 

"When I fell in love with Barack more than 20 years ago ... I knew he shared my determination to make a difference in other people's lives. But I never dreamed that he'd one day be president," Michelle Obama writes in an open letter in the November issue of Elle magazine.

The First Lady goes on to outline five reasons why those reading (presumably mostly women) should vote for her husband, Barack Obama, in the upcoming presidential election. Among her reasons, many of which we've heard both Michelle and Barack touch upon during previous speeches and the debates, are:

1. "He's is fighting for equal pay for women" by passing legislation like the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

2. "He'll fight for [women's] rights to make [their] own health-care decisions." (Shout out to Obamacare here.)

3. "He's putting affordable education within reach" by decreasing student loan interest and increasing funding for Pell grants.
