    Listen 00:48:59

    The First Lady leaves the White House with higher approval ratings than her husband. Michelle Obama is well known for her rousing, passionate speeches, her Let’s Move campaign to combat childhood obesity, her White house garden and her all-American fashion style.  She did it all with grace while raising two daughters and standing right by President Obama’s side. In this hour of Marty’s guest discuss Mrs. Obama’s legacy. We’ll be joined by VERONICA CHAMBERS, editor of “The Meaning of Michelle” and JODI KANTOR, New York Times correspondent and author of “The Obamas.”
