It immediately reminded me of this introduction Michelle gave for Barack way back in August 2007 in Iowa. I know the decision to get into the presidential race was still fresh on her mind. And anyone that paid attention knew that she wrestled with a lot of fears about what doing so would mean for Barack and their family...it was personal. There is a fierceness to her as she talks about this that we don't often see.
"The reason why I said yes was because I am tired of being afraid."
