WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama are slated to campaign together for the first time at a rally in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

The event Thursday afternoon will bring together two women who are a study in contrasts. Clinton is perhaps one of the least traditional first ladies in modern history, while Obama has fully embraced tradition.

Clinton dove into policy, undertook a massive project and failed under a harsh spotlight.

Mrs. Obama largely steered clear and enjoyed quieter, modest success. Both Ivy League-trained lawyers with their own careers, Clinton bridled under the stereotypes associated with the office, Mrs. Obama declared herself “mom in chief.”
