Weekly Wrap-Up

Here are five stories from our blog that you might have missed this week:

President Obama delivered a moving commencement address at Booker T. Washington High School in Memphis, winner of the 2011 Race to the Top Commencement Challenge.

The President rallied supporters in Washington, telling them that this campaign isn't about politics—it's about making sure schools are helping our kids reach their full potential and that seniors have peace of mind about their financial security and health care.

You can now purchase your very own "Made in the USA" birth certificate T-shirt or mug—because if we can't make the smears go away, we can at least have a little fun with them.

First Lady Michelle Obama reminded supporters at the Women's Leadership Forum National Issues Conference that "if we keep showing up, if we keep fighting the good fight and doing what we know is right, then eventually we will get there."

President Obama talked about the "moment of opportunity" following the sweeping changes we've seen in the Middle East and North Africa and laid out his vision for U.S. policy in the region.
