At a fundraiser today in New York, First Lady Michelle Obama expressed confidence in her husband's chances for reelection. "On Nov. 7 we're going to party hard," she said. Election Day this year is November 6.

From the pool report:

"After hearing my husband talk about his values and his vision at the debate last night, I'm pretty fired up," she said.
"Let me tell you, I am so glad last night was such an awesome, awesome event," she said. She mention[ed] her recent anniversary on Oct 3, the night of first debate.

"We got a quick little dinner. That's about it," she said. "But it's okay. On Nov. 7 we're going to party hard."

Her biggest applause lines were about Obama's policies on women - notably the Lily Ledbetter Act and women's control of their bodies. She also won applause by talking about passage of the Affordable Care Act.
