Delegates from all over the country expressed appreciation and respect for the First Lady, admiring her as a wife, mother, and for her role as First Lady in addressing key issues such as childhood obesity. â€œI think she has been perfect as First Lady,â€ said Maryland Delegate Jessy Mejia. â€œShe couldnâ€™t have been a more excellent role model for minority women.â€
The YBF reports President Obama’s team posted a photo of him with his two girls,Â SashaÂ &Â Malia, cheering on mom.Â These girls are growing up to be so gorgeous.Â Looks like somebody’s going to have a couple problems on his hands soon.Â By the way, today (Tuesday) was Malia’s first day of high school!
Delegates at the convention also believe the First Lady can speak to President Barack Obamaâ€™s successes in the past four years better than anyone else. â€œIâ€™m looking forward to the first lady really touting our Presidentâ€™s accomplishments,â€ said Heather Steinmiller, a delegate from Pennsylvania. â€œHeâ€™s an amazing President, who ran at a very difficult time, and he is a great leader.â€
Steinmiller also spoke of her admiration for the First Lady herself. â€œI find her inspiring because she is very educated, a female lawyer, worked for a major law firm in Chicago, but she has also taken the role of First Lady and highlighted an important issue that is an epidemic in our country with childhood obesity. â€œ
