An 8 Year Old's Take on the Michelle Obama Rally

My Report on Michelle Obama

Today I went to see Michelle Obama, Barack Obama's wife. She was at the University of Colorado, speaking to thousands of people about voter registration. She wanted to get people to sign up because she wanted people to vote for a great president.

Not everyone is registered to vote yet and she wanted everyone to get registered in time because the deadline is on Monday.

My favorite part of Michelle Obama's speech was when she was talking about college students getting in debt because they take money from loans to stay in college, and when they get out they're still in debt and they can't become teachers or stay in the community.

I thought she was amazing! She was strong and powerful and a great speaker!

Running for vice president is nothing new.

Running for vice president is nothing new.

Sarah Palin runs every day

""I get to go running every day, which is my sanity," the Republican nominee told CBS' Katie Couric on the campaign trail in Ohio. "Sweat is my sanity."

And, for the record, Palin, who opposes abortion in all instances, including for rape victims, yet stops short of saying anyone should be jailed for their abortion, considers herself a feminist.

"I do," Palin told Couric in an interview for the CBS Evening News. "I'm a feminist who, uh, believes in equal rights and I believe that women certainly today have every opportunity that a man has to succeed, and to try to do it all, anyway. And I'm very, very thankful that I've been brought up in a family where gender hasn't been an issue.

"You know, I've been expected to do everything growing up that the boys were doing. We were out chopping wood and you're out hunting and fishing and filling our freezer with good wild Alaskan game to feed our family. So it kinda started with that."

Also, for the record, Palin believes that evolution should be taught as "accepted principle.... I say that also as the daughter of a school teacher, a science teacher, who has really instilled in me a respect for science.''

But Palin isn't so ready with an answer about where she has gotten her information from all these years.
