FLOTUS says Obama 'doesn't need much advice' on debating


CNN's Jessica Yellin interviewed Michelle Obama today and a portion of it was played on The Situation Room.

From the transcript:

YELLIN: I've read that before a speech, you tell him, "Have fun."

OBAMA: Um-hmm.

YELLIN: But a debate is a little bit different, because it's more of a competition, more like a game of one-on-one.

What's your motivational advice to him before a debate?

OBAMA: You know, he doesn't need much advice. I mean he's been doing this for quite some time. So he -- he knows -- he knows the job. He's been doing it for quite some time. He's a very good debater.

The full interview airs tomorrow in the 7 p.m. hour.
