Should Michelle Obama Talk Policy?


When it comes to her husband's stimulus package, Michelle Obama knows the details. This week, the First Lady hit the government agency circuit to make the case for the bill, explaining at the Department of Housing and Urban Development that plans to create 15,000 affordable housing units, weatherized 2 million low-income homes, and repair military housing, would make their jobs easier by stopping a rise in homelessness.

Over the next few weeks, Michelle will visit cabinet-level agencies on a "get to know you tour," adding surrogate-in-chief to her role as mom-in-chief. So far, Michelle seems to have a little more Hillary Clinton in her, than Laura Bush.

Would you be happy to see Michelle out there making speeches about policy she believes in, or would you rather she stick to more traditional and less controversial first lady issues?
