MR. MARTIN:  An emotional moment this week as the First Lady went on David Letterman’s show and got all choked up talking about her father.

[VIDEO CLIP.]

FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA:  My father had multiple sclerosis, and I never knew him to be able to walk, but my dad worked so hard, and he loved us so much.  And I think from him, I learned just absolute, complete, unconditional love – the notion that kids really don’t need anything but to know that their parents adore them.  And I think that’s the greatest gift they gave us – just their constant support and, you know, stability.

And that’s really what we try to instill in our girls.  I mean you talk about raising kids.  It’s just really – you know, we had rules.  We had boundaries, but there wasn’t anything my dad wouldn’t do for us.  And, uh –

MR. DAVID LETTERMAN:  The, uh – what – [crosstalk]- —

MS. OBAMA:  Don’t make me cry!

MR. LETTERMAN:  No.  [Chuckles.]

[AUDIENCE CHUCKLES.]

MR. LETTERMAN:  Wha- —

MS. OBAMA:  This isn’t “Oprah.”

MR. LETTERMAN:  [Chuckles.]

[AUDIENCE LAUGHS.]

MS. OBAMA:  S’posed to be “Letterman.”

    A beautiful black woman or African American woman.  You have to love this family.  I feel very blessed to live to see this day.  And I’m not old.   You don’t have to be to make such a statement.  To see how they handle all the attacks with grace is such a divine lesson to us all.  With God’s blessing I will be out there again in November casting my vote.  I pray that others will do the same in making every effort to get out and vote.  Weather the storm or whatever comes before you.
