Michelle Obama: Vote Democratic no matter the candidate's record or qualifications

Speaking by phone in an interview for TV One this week, first lady Michelle Obama offered this final advice in advance of today's election:

"That's my message to voters, this isn't about Barack. It's not about person on that ballot; it's about you. And for most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on regardless of who said what or did this — that shouldn't even come into the equation. Voting is critical no matter who's on the ballot." [Daily Caller]
