Miami is First Lady central: Michelle Obama speaks Tuesday, Hillary Clinton on Wednesday

@MarcACaputo

Winter grips the rest of the country. So the politicians are coming to Miami.

Vice president Joe Biden fundraised here on Feb. 12; First Lady Michelle Obama visits Miami on Tuesday for her "Let's Move" wellness initiative. And now former First Lady/Senator/Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to speak at the University of Miami on Wednesday.

For some reason, these folks don't come down in August.

Here's Obama's advisory:

Miami, FL * 4:30 PM ET– Following the Let’s Move! School Wellness Event, the First Lady will travel to Miami, Florida.  While in Miami, she will visit a local parks and recreation center to make a major announcement about healthy out-of-school time.

This event is open press. Members of the media who wish to cover the event must RSVP with "OUT OF SCHOOL TIME" in the subject line to firstladypress@who.eop.gov by 12 PM, Monday, February 24th. Those who do not have a White House Hard Pass must also include: Full Legal Name, Date of Birth, Social Security Number, US Citizenship Status, Country of Origin, and Current City/State.

Following her event in Miami, the First Lady will join Mario Lopez for an interview for Extra.  This interview will air the following day.  Later that afternoon, the First Lady will join Satcha Pretto for an interview with ¡Despierta América!.  This interview will air the following day.
