In just a few days my husband is going to stand in front of some of his toughest critics and some of his biggest supporters, and he's going to talk proudly about the values we all share.
In his State of the Union speech, Barack will outline his plans for this year and remind Congress that people across the country are counting on us to be bold and creative to keep moving this country forward. He'll talk about opportunities that all Americans deserve: Access to higher education and the chance to earn a living wage, provide for their families and buy a home.
Now if I know Barack -- and I think I do -- he'd say he can't tackle a plan this big alone. That's why I'm asking you to show your support for him before he addresses the nation in two days and to commit to helping him and other Democrats get things done in 2015:
It's up to all of us to work together to keep on making that change we all believe in. Barack will remind Congress of that on Tuesday, and he'll remind them that they are all accountable to people like you.
Together, we have a lot of work to do. I'm in, and I hope you are too.
Thanks so much.
