First Lady jokes that N.C. will be tired of the Obamas before the campaign is over

First lady Michelle Obama joked that the first family will be campaigning so much in North Carolina that the state will become tired of them before the campaign is over.

“So it's going to be fun,” she told about 450 people Friday night at a fund raiser at the Ballantyne hotel in Charlotte. “ We are looking forward to it.  It’s going to be exciting.  You will be sick of us after a while.'

“No” responded the audience.

Replied the First lady: “Well, wait until the traffic starts.  (laughter) Wait until you got the President's motorcade, First Lady's motorcade, First Children's motorcade -- (laughter.)  You've got grandma here, the Vice President -- you'll be like, 'Is it over yet?"

She was accompanied by singer James Taylor. She was introduced on the stage to Bruce Springsteen's “We Take Care of Our Own.”
