First lady Michelle Obama is in China for an official visit to expand Sino-American relations, but she will refrain from talking about political differences. Mrs. Obama, who flew Wednesday from Washington, D.C., is making a week-long trip to three Chinese cities and will speak with children at several schools about the importance of education and youth empowerment. The U.S. first lady has several activities and events scheduled Friday with Chinese first lady Peng Liyuan. "Her visit and her agenda sends a message that the relationship between the United States and China is not just between leaders, it's a relationship between peoples," said Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.
