Michelle Obama, seeking to clarify her gaffe that ""For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country. Not just because Barack is doing well, but I think people are hungry for change," said yesterday:

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
