Barack Obama: Michelle Is My Moral Voice

President Barack Obama gives his wife Michelle a kiss on the cheek before she takes the stage at the Clinton Global Initiative on Thursday (September 23) in New York City.

“At the end of each day, it is Michelle, her moral voice, her moral center, that cuts through all the noise in Washington and reminds me why I’m there in the first place,” Barack said before the First Lady took the stage.

Michelle addressed the crowd during the closing session of the three-day conference, which annually brings together heads of state, scholars and government and business leaders to discuss solutions for social change.

In her nearly 22-minute long speech, Michelle voiced her concern for military veterans and their families. She urged global development groups to include them in their work, especially in a tough economy.
