Cluch Michelle Obama

Fresh off killing the game at the White House State Dinner over the weekend, First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night to discuss what she and President Obama plan on doing after moving out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“Girls’ education is the kind of work Barack and I want to do long after we leave the White House,” Mrs. Obama said.

During the show, the First Lady talked about her Let Girls Learn initiative, which champions education for girls worldwide. To that end, she’s kicked off the #62MillionGirls social media campaign that asks people to tweet what they learned in school.

While the Obamas will no doubt be a force in the push for global access to education once they leave the White House, Mrs. Obama is looking forward to a few other things as well.

“I want to do little things like open a window,” she said, explaining it’s a security risk if she rolls down the window when she rides around.

Mrs. Obama added, “I want to go to Target!”

During her appearance, Colbert also asked Mrs. Obama what words of wisdom she’d leave the incoming First Spouse if a woman wins the next election. As expected, Mrs. Obama kept it diplomatic.
“Be yourself,” she advised the next First Spouse. “Follow your passion.”

    Her top is lovely, she always knows how to dress. It’ll be interesting to see the Obamas life post presidency. (it’ll be more fulling than Bush’s im sure.)

    First Lady Michelle is a great role model for people globally. She has great fashion sense and she is right to advocate girls to experience a great educational experience. She has promoted exercise for years and she is the living definition of a strong black woman. I wish the best for her after she leaves the White House.
