In a rousing speech Tuesday night at a campaign fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, Mrs. Obama recited a list of achievements so far from the Obama administration, but said she knows too many people are out of work and can’t pay the bills.

Obama said her husband is counting on the support of voters and legislators like Boxer who is in a close race with Republican rival Carly Fiorina.

Obama said the presidential campaign was never about putting one man in the White House, it was about building a movement to restore the American dream.
