MT. PLEASANT - One year ago Michelle Obama said she wasn't planning on being on the campaign trail for her husband, Senator Barack Obama (D-Illinois). She was on vacation in Hawaii visiting with her husband's family when they started talking about it.Howie P.S.: For me, Michelle Obama is the antidote to the ideas expressed below in the Hunter S. Thompson piece, though I'm not sure the medicine will cure the nation.
“Everything looks better in Hawaii,” she said.
Joining Obama was Rep. Dave Loebsack. He said he feels Obama can be the person to work with both sides of the political spectrum. After a very civil campaign he had with former representative Jim Leach, he said Americans are sick and tired of the meanness of politics and that Obama seems uniquely qualified to bridge the divide.
