First Lady Michelle Obama took her "Let's Move!" campaign primetime last night with a workout on NBC's "The Biggest Loser." The inspirational segment showed the first lady getting sweaty with the contestants, interspersed with "oohs" and "ahhs" from Obama's starry eyed admirers. The competitors on "The Biggest Loser" are competing to win a fat cash prize by losing the most weight.
I have my own personal objections to Michelle Obama's focus on childhood obesity, but will save these observations for a future blog post. What was nice about this PR stunt was seeing how the first lady complains about working out just as much as everyone else:
I think Michelle Obama could learn a thing or two from "The Biggest Loser." If she promised me a cash prize of $250,000 in exchange for working out more, I'd probably move it up a few spots on my priority list.
