The First Lady encourages the nation to work out as part of her Let's Move! initiative, a fitness and nutrition campaign aimed at fighting childhood obesity. "The overall message of Let's Move is balance," she says. "Do we have a vegetable on the plate? Have we incorporated fruit? What's the portion size? Portion sizes have gotten out of control."
Four More Years
After his historic victory in 2008, President Barack Obama wins re-election, beating Republican nominee Mitt Romney for a second term in the White House. "I wouldn't be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. Let me say this publicly: Michelle, I have never loved you more," Obama says during his victory speech.
It Had to Be Wu
Four years after selecting relative unknown Jason Wu to design her gown for the inaugural ball, the first lady picks another look from the hot designer for President Obama's second celebration, a custom ruby red chiffon number with velvet halter-neck, leaving Wu himself "in shock." The evening gown caps off a stylish day for Obama, who dons a Thom Browne coat, jeweled belt, Cathy Waterman earrings and Reed Krakoff boots for the swearing in ceremony at the Capitol.
