As a general rule, First Ladies focus on very neutral issues --- supporting military families (hugging marine) and fighting childhood obesity --- but on Wednesday Michelle Obama waded into the gun control debate , delivering a speech in her hometown of Chicago. She recounted her meeting with the family of Hadiyah Pendleton--- a 15-year-old killed a week after she performed at the presidential inauguration. SOUNDBITE: U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama saying: "Hadiyah's mother did everything she could for her daughter. She enrolled her in everything, cheerleading, majorettes, the praise and dance ministry, anything to keep her off the streets and keep her busy. Hadiyah Pendleton was me and I was her. But I got to go grow up and go to Princeton, and Harvard Law school and to have a career and a family and the most blessed life I could imagine. Hadiyah? Oh we know that story." While her remarks were mostly personal, they won't go unnoticed on Capitol where a debate is raging about gun control. SOUNDBITE: U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama saying: "My husband is fighting as hard as he can and talking to as many people as he can to pass commonsense reform to protect our children from gun violence. And these reforms deserve a vote in congress." The First Lady spent the rest of the afternoon meeting with staff at a local high school where where more than two dozen students have been victims of gun violence --- almost a third of them fatally.
