Obama's wife says he is the Harry Potter parent

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- The wife of presidential hopeful Barack Obama says her husband is the "Harry Potter parent."

Michelle Obama says her husband has read all six books about the boy wizard's adventures aloud with their nine-year-old daughter. The two also saw the latest movie, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," together last weekend.

Obama says she doesn't know how her family will find time in between Iowa and New Hampshire campaigning to read the seventh and final book in the series that comes out this weekend. But, she guarantees the candidate will figure out a way to do it.

She made the comments in Boca Raton, Florida, during a campaign trip.
