[SOT/](michelle obama/first lady)"And I didn't think it was possible, but today, I love my husband even more than I did four years ago… even more than I did 23 years ago, when we first met. I love that he's never forgotten how he started. I love that we can trust Barack to do what he says he's going to do, even when it's hard - especially when it's hard. I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as "us" and "them" - he doesn't care whether you're a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above… he knows that we all love our country… and he's always ready to listen to good ideas… he's always looking for the very best in everyone he meets. And I love that even in the toughest moments, when we're all sweating it - when we're worried that the bill won't pass, and it seems like all is lost - Barack never lets himself get distracted by the chatter and the noise. Just like his grandmother, he just keeps getting up and moving forward…with patience and wisdom, and courage and grace. And he reminds me that we are playing a long game here…and that change is hard, and change is slow, and it never happens all at once. But eventually we get there, we always do.//Because in the end, more than anything else, that is the story of this country - the story of unwavering hope grounded in unyielding struggle. That is what has made my story, and Barack's story, and so many other American stories possible. And I say all of this tonight not just as First Lady…and not just as a wife. You see, at the end of the day, my most important title is still "mom-in-chief." My daughters are still the heart of my heart and the center of my world. But today, I have none of those worries from four years ago about whether Barack and I were doing what's best for our girls. Because today, I know from experience that if I truly want to leave a better world for my daughters, and all our sons and daughters…if we want to give all our children a foundation for their dreams and opportunities worthy of their promise…if we want to give them that sense of limitless possibility - that belief that here in America, there is always something better out there if you're willing to work for it…then we must work like never before…and we must once again come together and stand together for the man we can trust to keep moving this great country forward…my husband, our President, President Barack Obama."(****END****) VIDEO PRODUCER: angie---------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: pool-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: yes ----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: none ----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): none --------------------------------SCRIPT/WIRE SOURCE: cvn michelle obama
