Michelle Obama picks disaster heroes, gay athlete as speech guests

Heroes of the Boston Marathon bombing, a firefighter who led the rescue response to an Oklahoma tornado, and an openly gay basketball player will be among U.S. first lady Michelle Obama’s guests at the State of the Union address on Tuesday. The White House uses Mrs. Obama’s seating area in the chamber of the House of Representatives during her husband’s annual speech to Congress to highlight people and issues that are important to her and the administration. A Washington, D.C. teacher and the youngest intern at Intel Corp will also join the first lady, Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett in the box on Tuesday, the White House said.
