Vice President Joe Biden is being touted as the Obama re-election campaign’s secret weapon to connect with the all-important middle class vote.  But the VP isn’t the only one with working class roots on the Obama team — what about the First Lady?

The Romney and Santorum campaigns are relying heavily on their First Ladies in waiting in their efforts to appeal to the masses of minivan-driving, middle class moms.  I had a chance to talk about the idea of Michelle Obama as a re-election secret weapon with iVillage Chief Correspondent Kelly Wallace as part of my iVillage 2012 Election Editor duties!

What do you think? Can the First lady still connect with the middle class?  Or has her tenure in the White House put her too much at a distance to connect?
