‘Mom in Chief’

From Michael Booth, the White House pool reporter in Colorado:

First lady Michelle Obama amplified a personal appeal with a political rallying cry in Cherry Hills Village today, calling herself the “mom in chief” and urging her Democratic charges to get out the vote for Sen. Michael Bennet. Obama spoke at a private luncheon at a home in Cherry Hills, raising $270,000 for the appointed Bennet’s first election campaign. “Being in this wonderful state brings back some wonderful memories,” said Obama, with a sly smile. “I don’t know if anybody remembers that little gathering at Invesco Field . . .”
