Is Chelly-O More Popular Than The Prez? First Lady Pulls In More For Fundraising Than Hubby

- By Bossip Staff

Considering she’s been ranked the most powerful woman in the world, we’re not surprised that Michelle Obama is more popular in some circles than her husband, leader of the free world.

It turns out that when it comes to Chicago fundraisers, Chelly-O’s events actually will run you more money than Barack’s:

Tickets to mingle with the first lady are selling for 50 percent more than a similar event with the commander-in-chief. President Obama hosted a cocktail reception for Illinois Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias at the Drake hotel in Chicago the other night with tickets starting at $500. But at a fund-raiser for Giannoulias hosted by Michelle Obama this Wednesday at the University Club of Chicago, tickets start at $750.

Hopefully Michelle’s popularity can rub off on Barack, because we need him to get a second term!
