Michelle Obama Enlists Aid of Gay Activists at HRC Event



Michelle Obama pledged her husband's continued support of gay rights issues on Wednesday, as she addressed a major LGBT group.

"My husband has stood strong for the basic values of freedom, justice and equality that make this country great. And he always will," she told a Human Rights Campaign lunch here.

... She also made an appeal to activists in the crowd. "What I want to say here today is that we don’t have a single minute to waste. We really don’t. Time is of the essence. And we need you all to be fired up, but we need you to work like never before," she said. "I mean, truly work like never before. We need you out there every single day between now and November the 6th."
