On her relationship with First Lady Michelle Obama:
"From the very first meeting that Michelle and I first had together, we just clicked. She said to me: 'What issues do you think that you're going to be interested in working on?' I said, 'I would like to work with military families,' and she said, 'That's what I want to work on to.' So, right away, we had this instant bond and that was something we decided [to] work on together."
On where she sees herself and Vice President Biden in ten years:
"I don't know where I see myself in the next ten minutes or the next ten hours! I mean, I would hope I could say to you that in ten years I'll be working... and I'll still be working on those issues that have always meant a lot to me: military families, education, community colleges, teachers, women's health issues. And that's been my life word, and I can't imagine that it would change–but you never know."
