Michelle Obama: Electing Barack No "Easy" Job
By Alec MacGillis
DENVER -- All the talk of anxiety among Democratic delegates about Barack Obama's chances this fall may have gotten to his wife Michelle. Addressing several hundred members of the convention's black caucus at the Denver convention center today, she appeared to be referring to those worrying about the closeness of the race when she broke off her train of thought, paused, and declared in a serious, gently upbraiding tone: "This is not going to be easy. There's nothing about electing Barack Obama to be the next president of the United States that could ever be easy."
The crowd laughed knowingly.
"Easy wasn't in the cards."
The crowd laughed again.
"I always tease Barack. I say, you just don't do things easy, do you? But just because it's not easy doesn't mean it's not possible."
The crowd broke into loud applause.
