Michelle Obama to campaign for Gregoire

Michelle Obama will appear at an event for Chris Gregoire next month in Seattle, the governor's re-election campaign announced Tuesday.

They have a fund-raiser planned for noon July 17 at WAMU Theater at Qwest Field, tickets ranging in price from $200 to $1,000 each. (Perhaps with the higher donation, one gets a personal fist bump from Mrs. Obama?)

Gregoire, a super delegate to the national convention, endorsed Obama shortly before the state's precinct caucuses in February.

While this is likely to generate sizable cash and attention for the Gregoire campaign, one might reasonably expect Republican Dino Rossi's forces will spin this as a sign that she's
a.) nervous;
b.) worried;
c.) desperate;
d.) all of the above
in the face his furious campaign onslaught.
