"When it comes to the health of our families, Barack refused to listen to all those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day, another president. He didn't care whether it was the easy thing to do politically -- that's not how he was raised -- he cared that it was the right thing to do."

She ended on the ultimate Oprah note:

"And I didn't think it was possible, but today, I love my husband even more than I did four years ago ... even more than I did 23 years ago, when we first met. ... I love that he's never forgotten how he started.

"And he reminds me that we are playing a long game here ... and that change is hard, and change is slow, and it never happens all at once.

"But eventually we get there, we always do."

She generously offered to share her hope, her savior, her protector, with other working mothers. If you, like she, want your daughters to have the American dream, she says there's only one thing to do:

"We must work like never before ... and we must once again come together and stand together for the man we can trust to keep moving this great country forward: my husband, our president, President Barack Obama."

Single mothers of the world, unite! You have nothing to fear. Her man is here to protect your kids, too.
