On a stage that resembled a talk show set, Michelle Obama played the host Thursday as she listened to four Charlotte-area women recount personal stories of economic hardship.

“This is like ‘The View,’” Obama told 400 people in uptown’s McGlohon Theatre.

Obama offered empathy, as well as plugs for her husband’s policies. Her guests talked about problems with health care, aging parents and an uncertain economy – what Obama called “the issues that matter most to women and families.”

The Barack Obama campaign’s second high-profile visit to Charlotte this week – following vice presidential candidate Joe Biden’s on Sunday – came as new polls show him and John McCain virtually tied in North Carolina. The nominee himself will be in town Sunday, the campaign said late Thursday.  Source Article
