First Advocate of the Day: Michelle Obama
... [I]n a departure from her predecessor, Mrs. Obama has ... begun promoting bills that support her husband’s policy priorities....
It is a notably different approach than the one embraced by the former first lady, Laura Bush, who like most others steered clear of discussing legislation.

Ya gotta be kidding. Laura Bush didn't know any more about the Bush administration's legislative agenda than her husband did. It would have been like looking to Sarah Palin for a comment.
