Well, well, well My Michelle

There is no doubt that a spouse can influence an election.  Just consider Teresa Heinz Kerry.  I have no doubt that she cost her husband, at least, a few votes. 

Today, Maureen Dowd looks at Michelle Obama:

"Mike Murphy, the G.O.P. strategist who worked for John McCain in 2000, but not yet this year, said Michelle is heading into her “big moment in the sun.”

'She’ll have the opportunity to do pretty well and the opportunity to really screw up.” he said. “What I glimpse of her from far away makes me think there could be trouble, but anytime you have that size microphone, she will have some control over how she handles the pressure'.”
