I felt a little bit like Charlie finding the Golden Ticket when I was given a green ticket to see First Lady Michelle Obama at the James L. Knight Center yesterday. That allowed my to be at the very front close to the stage where I had a wonderful view. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Marc Anthony, Gabrielle Union and many others spoke before the First Lady was introduced.
One of my favorite highlights included the First Lady talking about Brack Obama’s grandmother casting a ballot for her grandson. Another was when someone in the audience shouted “We love you, Michelle! We got your back.” The auditorium erupted into cheers thatwent on for at least a full minute. I had to laugh when, while encouraging us to talk to everyone in these last days before the election, Michelle Obama said to even include the ex-husband we haven’t spoken to in years. How did she know I have one of those?

After leaving the auditorium, I was again fortunate to be in the right place at the right time and was able to watch the motorcade escorting the First Lady out of Dowtown Miami.
