Oh, and it wouldn't surprise me to hear Melanie saying the same thing. She has a history of that.

I only remember her singing about rollerskates!

I agree. The quote is:

And if I can be standing here as your forever first lady.
Not America's forever first lady -- as this thread alleges she claimed -- her audience's forever first lady. And who was her audience? Largely inner city Philadelphia college bound high school seniors. Michelle Obama also told them when she was a college-bound high school senior, her high school counselor 'advised her' not to set her sights too high. Michelle went on to say:
Quote:
“You guys ignored the haters."
Excellent advice.
