Michelle Obama arrives in Copenhagen for IOC vote PHOTOS

U.S. first lady Michelle Obama is greeted by Laurie S. Fulton, the U.S. Ambassador to Denmark after arriving at Copenhagen's Kastrup Airport, Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2009.


COPENHAGEN Michelle Obama's welcoming party was more like a stopover. She chatted with the ambassador, kissed Chicago Mayor Richard Daley on the cheek and gave her old friends quick hugs hello before climbing into the waiting SUV. With only two days until the 2016 games are awarded, there's no time to waste.

--snip--

Funny, gracious and incredibly accomplished, she's one of the few people who can rival her husband's popularity. She also knows the neighborhoods where the games would be, having grown up on the South Side of Chicago. The Obamas' Chicago home is a short walk from the planned Olympic stadium.
"These are my neighborhoods," Mrs. Obama said.

--snip--

Mrs. Obama planned to meet with IOC members later Wednesday and Thursday, and also has a meeting scheduled with Rogge. She'll attend Chicago's welcome bash along with Oprah Winfrey and has lunch plans Thursday with the Danish queen. On Friday, she and her husband will both be part of Chicago's final presentation to IOC members.

"We're not going to sing together or anything," Mrs. Obama said recently, drawing laughs. "I don't know if I can elaborate any more without giving away too much of it. ... All I have are my stories, my experiences as a Chicagoan, as an American, as someone who believes deeply that health and fitness have got to play a greater role in the lives of our kids and our communities, and as someone who believes that the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be the best way to bring that message home."
