Sara Coleman ’01 introduced President Barack Obama at a health-care forum at Raleigh’s Broughton High School on Wednesday. She’s the owner of The Cupcake Shoppe in Raleigh. He called her the “cupcake lady” and “ribbed [her] for not bringing snacks.”

“I mean, I know I’ve been talking about health care a lot, but I think cupcakes are good for your health,” he said.

Coleman, 30, doesn’t know who suggested her to the White House, only that her name came up at dinner party. Over the weekend, she got the call.

Watch Coleman’s introduction in the first 2 minutes of this video.

    AND this was just a day after her business celebrated it’s two year anniversary! Democrat, republican, or other – I’d call that a GREAT week for her!
