[DNC Chairman] Tim Kaine Defends Michelle Obama's Trip to Spain
CBS News' Political Hotsheet ^ | August 9, 2010 | Stephanie Condon

First Lady Michelle Obama was criticized last week for vacationing in Spain with her daughter while the economy continues to sputter, but Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine said this morning it's "wrong" to attack the First Family's private vacation.

"I think it's wrong to talk about the first lady's family vacation as a politician," Kaine said on NBC's "Today Show." "She's a mom."

Michelle Obama traveled with her daughter Sasha and a group of friends to Costa del Sol in southern Spain.

"When you're in office you don't give up being a mom and a family member, too," Kaine said. "This was an opportunity for Michelle to join friends and friends' daughters [and] give them exposure to a part of the world that they haven't been before."

He said President and Michelle Obama are "focused on being good parents."

“She’s a mom.”

Well, she’s a mother, that’s for sure.

In the 1990s, there were articles about how elementary school students supposedly wrote letters urging Slick to "give Hillary more power".
