She really is like the rest of us.

Michelle Obama says she isn't tuning in to this week's Republican National Convention. But that's just her.

Appearing on CBS' "Late Show" on Wednesday, the first lady encouraged every American to follow coverage of both political conventions. It's a good way to help each citizen decide which presidential candidate to vote for in November, she told host David Letterman.

But Mrs. Obama noted that her decision is already made. So is her decision about watching this week's convention. As the wife of the guy the Republicans are running against, "I tend not to watch it," she said.
