BEDFORD, N.H. -- Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, visited New Hampshire Monday campaigning for her husband.
It was her second trip to New Hampshire since her husband became a presidential candidate.
She says that her goal of such visits is to shed more light on her husband as a person.
She told a house party in Windham and a town hall meeting in Bedford that she first heard of Barack when he was a summer associate at her Chicago law firm.
"I wasn't sure what to make of a guy with such a funny name. I thought that since he had a funny name he must be a little weird," she said.
But after she got to know him she learned two things: he was cuter than she originally thought, and he had substance.
"He inspired me to get off the corporate ladder and begin working to make the world not as it is, but as it should be," she said.
In Bedford about 30 people attended, many of them Obama supporters.
She said that her family is more important than the campaign so she more likely will make day trips on the campaign trail. On Monday, she had breakfast with her daughters, campaigned in New Hampshire, and returned home for supper.
