First Lady Michelle Obama has shown us all how to deal with the nastiness that has infected American politics: do not indulge it.  At a fund-raiser in a private Washington residence on Tuesday night, a gay rights activist standing only a few steps away interrupted the first lady as she spoke. Michelle's reaction was immediate. She did not try to talk over the heckler or engage the person in a debate or pass it off as a joke or wait until the rant subsided. Instead, she stepped away from the microphone, walked over to the shouting woman and said, “Listen to me or you can take the mike, but I'm leaving.” And then, to the rest of the crowd, “You all decide.

WASHINGTON -- First Lady Michelle Obama will lead a presidential delegation to Friday's opening ceremony for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and plans during her four-day trip to meet Queen Elizabeth, cheer on Team USA and inspire kids to get fit. “Leading our nation's delegation and traveling to London is truly a dream come true,” she told reporters during a conference call Monday. “If anybody had asked me when I was 10 or 11 or 20, or actually 40, whether I would be doing this, I would have bet not. Some of my fondest memories when I was young and not so young involved watching the Olympics on TV.” Her trip begins Thursday.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The patchwork quilt that is the Democratic Party base -- women, Latinos, African-Americans -- will be on full display at Tuesday night's opening session of the national party convention. The highlight will be a prime-time address by First Lady Michelle Obama who is expected to play the same role Ann Romney did one week ago at the GOP gathering in Tampa: eschewing hard-edged politics for a soft-focus testimonial to her husband. The keynote speech will be delivered by San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, marking the first time a Latino has delivered the marquee speech that has sometimes served as a political launching pad to bigger and better things.

Michelle Obama is kicking herself.  In proof that the mouth is faster than the brain, the first lady referred to herself as a "busy single mother" in a CBS interview. (Video below.) She then said, well, no, she's not single.  But, she told a Vermont CBS affiliate, "sometimes when you've got the husband who's president, it can feel a little single -- but he's there. "   She corrected her characterization to "busy working mom. " All things considered, it's a rather geniune slip-up from a mom who probably doesn't always have it easy.  Like first ladies throughout history, she's unpaid and has no official duties but is constantly in the spotlight.

Michelle Obama says that claims in a new book about her relationship with the president and role in his administration are off base, and feed into the long-held view of critics that she is "some angry black woman" (see video below). In an interview that aired Wednesday on "CBS This Morning," the first lady said she has not read "The Obamas," the new book by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor. In fact, she rarely, if ever, reads any of the books that claim to have insight into the personal life of her and her family.
