Hillary Clinton was always expected to get a late-campaign enthusiasm boost from the White House.On a star-studded team of campaign surrogates – including President Barack Obama – the most valuable player of 2016 is undoubtedly first lady Michelle Obama.To the Clinton campaign, Michelle Obama is a crucial asset who can connect with the Democratic base – particularly young people – but also reach independent and undecided voters.Even among Clinton's so-called "uber-surrogates" – the president, Vice President Joe Biden, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren – Michelle Obama has stood out.Anita McBride, a veteran of three Republican administrations, said Mrs. Obama's schedule is more flexible at this stage of the administration because she has held the final events for some of her biggest initiatives.Clinton is still contending with the slow release of hacked emails that have raised questions about her relationship to Wall Street and inner campaign workings, and will likely be asked about it when she and Trump debate one final time Wednesday night, but Trump has taken up much of the spotlight.
