We'll be heading back from Camp David to the White House shortly, but I was surprised last night when the First Lady came to my room to talk.
It was announced on Friday that Michelle will be doing a couple of commencement addresses, and she asked if I'd be willing to work with her on her speeches. I think it's fairly well known that the First Lady and I have not always gotten along. This goes way back to her and Big Guy's dating days in Chicago. Whenever we'd go out for drives, for example, the conversations were always a bit stilted because Big Guy had a tough time reading the screens via the rear-view mirror when I was in the backseat. But I digress.
I'll be happy to help Michelle with her speeches, particularly the one in early June, when she will speak to the graduating class of Washington Mathematics Science Technology Public Charter School, because this is one of those "Everyone Wins" opportunities. Michelle gets to inspire the kids on everything from body-tone workouts, shoe buying and the importance of education. And the Mathematics and Science graduates can explain to us our Administration's deficit formula.
