Dear colleagues,

This is, perhaps, the quote of the year. Anyone can post to ADS-L if you want.
...
Michelle Obama said this on the radio on The Steve Harvey Show on December 11, 2012. It was originally from Barack Obama, not Michelle..
...
In 2016, Michelle Obama said it at a college commencement, then at the DNC, and then Hillary Clinton used it at the debate on Sunday, crediting Michelle Obama (but not Barack Obama).
...
MISC.:
Hillary Clinton twice said "America is great because she is good." I have an old post for that, ...
