The President’s new strategy includes deploying a potentially powerful resource-----first-lady Michelle Obama. NBC’s White House correspondent Savannah Guthrie has more.

‘This current situation is unacceptable. It is unacceptable.’

For the first time really engaging in the health-care debate, first-lady Michelle Obama went to the heart of the matter.

We were terrified. He said ‘get to the emergency room right away’.

She told of the time daughter Sasha became ill as an infant.

But it is that moment in our lives that flash is through my head every time we engage in this health insurance conversation. It’s that moment in my life. Because I think about what on earth would we have done if we had not had insurance.

Trying to turn the tide of public opinion and get the health-care bill across the finish line, the White House is deploying a not so secret weapon.

‘We can build the better future and maybe affect the world. Thank you so much.’

On the campaign trail , Michelle Obama was known as the closer, so effective was she at closing the sale for her husband. But though she is a Harvard-trained lawyer and former hospital executive, as first lady she has focused on non-controversial issues like healthy eating, avoiding that nitty-gritty of the health-care policy debate. The White House is mindful of the disastrous experience of another first-lady. Hilary Clinton is still so identified with the issue. She was asked about it Friday.

‘We just have to calm down here, take two aspirins, go to bed, think about it in the morning. But I’m very optimistic.’

‘You keep your insurance. You keep your doctors. And you blessed.’

As she enter the health-care battle, some analysts say the first-lady must try carefully.

‘If she gets too specific, she invites criticism. And if she can stay about the fray, keep going out
there, get in front of the audiences and stick with the right message. It will be helpful.’


And in a sign of how the White House is using Mrs. Obama more often. It is she, not her husband who will travel to Copenhagen next month to make Chicago speech to get the Olympics. For Today. Savannah Guthrie, NBC news, the White House.
