UC Merced has a bandwagon

UC Merced students who led the "Dear Michelle" campaign have set the standard for other groups attempting to court the first lady.



From a Google Alert I have set up, I learned of one such attempt this morning by Mocha Moms, a national organization for stay-at-home moms of color.



The group, according to an article on www.examiner.com, "Mocha Moms, Inc. are following the lead of the University of California at Merced, the newest and smallest campus in the CaliFirst lady Michelle Obama addresses the first full graduating class of the University of California at Merced.fornia state university system, who wooed the First Lady with thousands of letters to be the university's first commencement speaker in May 2009."



The group hopes the "Mom-in-Chief" will speak at their national conference which begins July 30 in Chicago, IL, the Obamas' hometown.



What do you think? Will they succeed?
