Michelle Obama was the main attraction for a line around the block for hours that filled Bradley Tech High School‘s auditorium on Thursday.

Over two thousand people rallied to support the democratic agenda in this Fall’s heated presidential debate.  The crowd sang along to Al Green in waiting and chanted ‘Four more years!’ during breaks in Michelle’s speech.  Some were brought to tears by her sympathetic words in regards to her husband’s humble upbringing and hardships they endured in their progression to the White House.

Mrs. Obama determinedly expressed hers and the President’s views about women’s rights, health care reform, and America’s debt crisis.  She reiterated Barack’s accomplishments thus far and expressed the significance of individual votes.

Later Thursday the First Lady met privately with members of the Sikh community to express her condolences for the recent tragic shootings that occurred in Oak Creek.
