Look at that crease! YOU Have Potential…

How are those crisp trouser creases working out for you?

So let’s get our game on!

"The First Lady has – and will continue to be – a tremendous asset for Democrats on the ballot in November," said Michael Czin, spokesman for the DNC. "She has a unique ability to make what’s at stake in this election crystal clear.”


As they say: “lead, follow or get out of the way.”

"(He) is going to do everything he can to help the candidates," the official said. "In some cases, that may mean staying out of the way."

Specifically, in this case:

And you have potential…
