First Lady Campaigns In Laconia
The First Lady defended the president's health care law before a very receptive crowd in the Laconia Middle School Gym.
Do we want these reforms to be repealed [NO!] or do we want the people we love to have the care they need [YES!]
A somewhat dramatic moment came when a teenager standing in the risers behind her fainted.

And Michelle Obama’s pitch of her “It Takes One” effort – a push to get the politically active to reach out to others, was well received by Greg Wilkin.

The First Lady’s visit continued in Manchester at Southern New Hampshire University. Earlier in the day she visited a private home in Holderness.
