Michelle Obama says voters need to decide this election by examining the issues, not because they like a candidate or think ``she's cute.''
Obama spoke in Charlotte on Thursday morning at a women's round-table on economic issues. The crowd roared at her remark disparaging voters who might cast a ballot because of a woman's looks, a clear jab at Republican vice presidential pick Sarah Palin.
Obama tried to clarify her remark with a smile, saying she was talking about herself.
I'm also coming around strongly to the idea that the pig/lipstick comment was not an innocent mistake.
