White House says Michelle Obama may be Clinton’s top advocate

White House says Michelle Obama may be Clinton’s top advocateFirst lady Michelle Obama probably helps Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail more than President Obama does, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Friday. “Based on the strong support and deep respect that people across the country have for her, based on the compelling personal argument that she’s been making in support of Secretary Clinton, and she’s also quite talented in her own right at delivering a speech, and those things I do think combine to make her a very powerful advocate for secretary Clinton — and probably the most powerful advocate that Secretary Clinton has,” Earnest told reporters at his daily briefing. Earnest’s comment came after Michelle Obama won rave reviews from Democrats and some pundits for a pair of high-profile speeches on the campaign trail.
