Where Michelle Obama Plans To Go Post-White House

First Lady Michelle Obama left The Late Show host Stephen Colbert starstruck during her visit to his show on Monday night. But can you really blame the guy? The First Lady, who was greeted with thunderous applause when she hit The Late Show stage on Monday night ("George Clooney didn't get that," Colbert told her, adding, "You're the biggest superstar we've had on the show") was as regal as she was down-to-earth. Mrs. Obama spent the bulk of her interview talking passionately about her recently launched Let Girls Learn Campaign, which raises awareness about the 62 million girls around the world who are not in school and advocates a change to those staggering numbers. The First Lady recalled her own education in the South Side of Chicago (she even shared an adorable picture of herself in Kindergarten) and urged that we, "don't take for granted the education we have here." The First Lady asked Colbert and viewers alike to, "Imagine if young women like [Nobel Peace Prize winner] Malala Yousafzai couldn't get the opportunity to fulfill their promise" and promised that her campaign would set out to ensure that "all our kids are getting an education beyond high school." In addition to spreading the word about her Let Girls Learn Campaign (and urging everyone on social media to join in on the conversation with the hashtag #62MillionGirls, which even Mr. Colbert joyfully took part in), Obama chatted about her final year as the First Lady of the United States. In addition to her passionate work with the Let Girls Learn Campaign, she also admitted she's looking forward to basic things like opening windows and driving. Oh, and also, she admitted: "I wanna go to Target." Below, watch the clip of First Lady Michelle Obama's delightful visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert — in which she also talks about a particularly thrilling instance of getting some illicit open-window air on a trip to Camp David.
