BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: Even though there are denials on both sides of the Atlantic , there's a remark floating around that's being attributed to first lady Michelle Obama that she may have to live with, for a while. However fairly or unfairly, it'll probably make it's way to the talk shows. It's in a new book about French first lady Carla Bruni . It says that during a private moment, Mrs. Obama told her she hates the job as first lady and that it's hell. Again, both Bruni and the first lady's office are denying it, but you may be hearing it again. The fact is, as the president noted in a speech in Connecticut just today, it is a tough role. A number of first ladies have felt caged in, and as the old saying goes in politics, they weren't the ones elected.
