How brave of her, to mingle with the commoners.

(The Hill)– First lady Michelle Obama vowed Friday to be an active partner in President Obama’s reelection campaign.

While for the time being the first lady is more focused on her pet initiatives — addressing childhood obesity and aiding military families — she said she’ll be ready to work for President Obama’s campaign when the time comes.

“It truly is far away. And whenever it’s time to campaign, they’ll tap me on the shoulder, and I’ll be right there,” Obama said of the 2012 campaign on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “But until then, we’ve got some great initiatives.”

“We’ve got a lot of work to do, and I’m rolling up my sleeves to get that work done,” Michelle Obama said. “And we’ll cross that other bridge when we get there.”
