Michelle Obama had her debut on the campaign trail for Hilary Clinton on Friday. Appearing at one of the Democratic nominee’s rallies in Fairfax, Virginia, the First Lady explained why she so strongly supports the former Secretary of State for the presidency. However, the crowd made it quite clear who they want in the White House when they began chanting “four more years.”
Obama told the crowd that we are less than two months away from election day. She noted that this means it is almost time for her family to move on from the White House, the place they have called home for the past eight years. The crowd’s response echoed the sentiments of many of us, who would be all too happy to have President Obama serve a third term as Commander-in-Chief.
Four more years! Four more years!” the crowd chanted so loudly that Obama had to pause her speech.
Once the crowd quieted, Mrs. Obama assured them that even though their time in the White House had come to an end, they would continue to fight for the well-being of all Americans.
Let me say this. You have me and Barack working on your behalf for the rest of our lives. So no need to worry. We’re gonna be here.

Obama also told the crowd that when it comes to a presidential candidate, they should vote for someone who doesn’t “just pop off.”
“When you’re making life or death, war or peace decisions, a president can’t just pop off,” she said.
She continued, “The presidency doesn’t change who you are. It reveals who you are. And the same thing is true of a presidential campaign. So if a candidate is erratic and threatening, if a candidate traffics in prejudice, fears, and lies on the trail, if a candidate has no clear plans to achieve their goals, if they disrespect their fellow citizens who made extraordinary sacrifices for our country, let me tell you: That is who they are.”
