Michelle should focus on how her husband is an agent of change for our country in foreign relations, homeland security, education and is a role model focused on economic inclusion.
ASTRID CHIRINOS - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE LATIN AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Michelle possesses the qualities that make a first lady truly admirable: class, brains, beauty, confidence and a great mother and wife. Apart from that, she has proven to be a leader herself and has made us believe that President Obama is not alone in his presidency.
PAM SANCHEZ - COMMUNITY AND PUBLIC RELATIONS MANAGER AT NORSAN MEDIA
The fact that President Obama is married to Michelle, an accomplished woman in her own right, dispels any doubt about whether he gets it about women. She should mention what hes done to support womens reproductive rights, equal pay and access to health care.
JILL FLYNN - FORMER WACHOVIA EXEC, NOW PARTNER AT FLYNN HEATH HOLT LEADERSHIP, A CONSULTING FIRM
Michelle is an impressive lady with high marks in the polls. She should focus on her husbands accomplishments; our service men and women are home from Iraq and Osama Bin Laden has met his maker. She should speak about womens health care and the sanctity of their privacy and medical choices.
MARK ERWIN - CHARLOTTE BUSINESSMAN AND FORMER AMBASSADOR IN THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION
Michelle can most help her husband by speaking from her personal point of view on health care, education and unemployment. She should speak directly to women and young adults. These are issues that hugely impact the American dream for all.
MICHAEL A. DEVAUL - SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, YMCA OF GREATER CHARLOTTE
Michelle must address the many women who see economic security as more important than free birth control. We need to know that the president cares as much about our families as he does his own. Its difficult to see how passing on high debt, high unemployment and entitlement policies is a gift to the next generation.
