Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert opened last night's interview with the wife of the Democratic presidential candidate by asking Michelle Obama how many silver spoons were in her mouth when she grew up on the south side of Chicago.

She said, "We had four spoons. And then my father got a raise at the plant, and we had five spoons."

Obama kept right up with Colbert, answering some joke questions seriously. She said it's "a mistake" for pundits to predict Hillary Clinton will win the women's vote in next week's Pennsylvania primary. His wife says Obama understands what's important to working women because he lives with her.

Senator Clinton will be Colbert's guest tomorrow night.
